When students enter the classroom of P.J. Gelinas Junior High School art teacher Michael Sacco, they are quickly captivated by a sense of creativity, imagination and artistic inspiration – factors that contributed to Mr. Sacco being featured in SchoolArts Magazine for the 12th time in his career.  

An article penned by Mr. Sacco details one of the lessons he uses in the ninth grade media arts class at Gelinas. The featured project focuses on a style of photography created by a street artist in Germany that incorporates triptychs in photos. In addition to the overview of the lesson, the article also features the work of several of Mr. Sacco’s former students. These include Melaina Gargano (current sophomore), Scarlett Jackett (current junior), Ryan Nagle (current junior) and Emma Robinson (current junior).  All were in ninth grade when artwork was created and currently attend Ward Melville High School. 

The article by Mr. Sacco was included in the publication’s September issue and will be reprinted as part of a special SchoolArts collection text highlighting STEAM lessons, which is expected to be unveiled in March during the National Art Education Association Convention in Minneapolis.
