Ramon C. Cortines School for the Visual and Performing Arts

The Visual Art Academy is proud to present: “Nostalgia”- our second art show of the 2020-21 school year. The word “Nostalgia” refers to memories, sentimental longings and affections for past places, moments and experiences that brought great joy. With the stresses of the COVID 19 Pandemic continuing to weigh upon our hearts and minds it is entirely natural and necessary to think of uplifting past times in our lives. This in turn helps provide hope and the possibility of an even brighter future.

The “Nostalgia” art show gave our student creators an artistic license to explore, reminisce and depict a time, an event, or a place that they would love to return to, illuminate visually and share with our VAPA community. At a time when all seems uncertain, controlled and confined – who wouldn’t want to indulge in thoughts that recall better days.

We hope you enjoy these thoughtful adventures “down memory lane” of our students. Please take some time this holiday season to create new wonderful experiences that will one day be charished.
With the deepest sincerity and admiration!

Your Visual Arts Teachers 

Julie McManus, Jennifer Lemvo, Oliver Shipley, Mark Schwartz, Jorge Caridad and LaMoin Garrard
