ARTS


he art department at Bergen continues to grow and strive for excellence, remaining on the cutting edge of technol-


ogy in order to keep its students com- petitive among their peers. The end of the year marked the yearly sub- mission of the AP Studio Art classes’ portfolio to the College Board for re- view. Students digitally submit 12 pieces for their “Breadth” section, in- cluding a wide variety of techniques, media and subject matter. Accompa- nying that are another 12 pieces in a “Concentration” section, in which students perform an in-depth explo- ration of a central idea or artistic process. Finally, students select five artworks to physically send to the College Board as their “Quality” section. Because of the advanced technology and art-making software provided to the students of Bergen Catholic, two seniors opted to submit entirely computer-based work for their concentrations. Seniors will receive their scores mid-summer, and based on those scores, they have the potential to receive college credit for their work. Beyond that, two of Bergen Catholic’s students re-


ceived prestigious awards in national competitions. Peter Yoon ’16 received two Scholastic Art and Writing awards for photographs that he submitted. He received a gold medal for an exuberant photo of one Bergen Catholic’s beloved “Crusader Crazies.” He also received an Amer- ica Visions Award for a photograph of a young boy he took while on a trip this summer. Nicholas LaScala ’17 was one of the top 24 finalists in the National Geographic photo contest for high school students for his photo of a man bursting through a snow bank on a snowmobile. Congratulations to these talented students on their


hard work and commitment to the arts while here at Bergen Catholic. We are very proud of them and cannot wait to see what the future has in store for them.
