PressReleaseThumbnailClick Here for Official Scholastic Press Release! 

The Berlin High School Art Department is pleased to announce that
four of our students have won awards at the
2017 Connecticut Regional Scholastic Art Awards!

This national program was originated to honor the creative efforts of grade 7 to 12 students in public, private and parochial schools. It is now the largest and most senior program of its type in the country.  Following the close of the Conn. Regional exhibit, the select Gold Key award winners from each national region will have their art works reviewed by a blue ribbon panel of judges at the National level in March. The National Jury will select “Gold Medal” National winners and call in their artwork to be exhibited in New York City during June. The National student awards ceremony will be held at Carnegie Hall in mid- June.

On Trays Cafe Logo


The new BHS Cafeteria name was chosen by Senior, Lisa Grieco, who won a contest two years ago to name the Cafe.  Senior, Alex Curtin, created a logo for the cafeteria, as part of a competition in the Digital Art II Class, which was installed in the cafe over the summer.

Digital Art I Student Work Featured on They Draw and Cook Website!

As an end of semester project, students in Digital Art I created illustrated recipes using Digital Mixed Media techniques. They had to choose a recipe that had either a family or cultural connection, design their layout using a hand-drawn element, and incorporate their skills in Adobe Photoshop and/or Illustrator.
