Our March artists: High School Seniors from Palette Art Studio
About our artists:
Eva Glassman is a senior at Amity High School who started taking painting lessons at Palette Art Studio in October 2016. She will be attending Hamilton College next year to pursue her interests in writing, music, visual arts, history, and political science.
Hannah Kim is 18 years old and started oil painting at Palette Art Studios in 2016. She has been drawing and painting since the age of 4. She is currently taking AP Art Studio at her school and hopes to carry on her love for art in college.
Catherine Tang has been taking painting and drawing classes at Palette Art Studio since sixth grade. She has loved painting from the moment she first picked up a brush – her favorite part is mixing colors and seeing how they interact with one another on the canvas. She hopes to move further in her art abilities by minoring in art in college. She is interested in applying her art skills in her future career in medicine/dentistry.
Vera Ting is a senior at Amity Regional High School. She began taking classes at Palette Art Studio in 2014. Elements of nature have always fueled her creative processes, and from a young age her focus in art has always been nature and animals. Working from observation and using detailed rendering, she explores facets of the natural world and the interrelationships between different flora and fauna. In the coming year, Vera plans to study evolutionary biology and fine art at the University of Michigan.
Maya Mali, 17, started painting seriously at Palette Art Studio 3 years ago. Maya loves to doodle, draw, and paint in her free time. She started out painting with a water-based paint called gouache, but quickly transitioned to oils, and has been working with them ever since. Maya is hoping to get her Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience and possibly a minor in the visual arts.
Anastasia Shnyakin is a senior at Amity Regional High School. She has been taking painting classes at Palette Art Studio for 8 years and drawing classes for 6 years. She plans to minor in Art History in college.
Hallel Shapiro-Franklin is a senior at Amity Regional High School and attends the Educational Center for the Arts in New Haven, in the visual department. Next year she plans on participating in a gap year program based in Israel, while traveling to other countries to better understand the global perspective of Judaism in the world. She is inspired by how we connect and who we are as human beings. After her adventures, she plans on attending college to study fine art, English, and psychology.
