Throughout the school year, students in Samantha Shepard’s Drawing and Painting classes at Shoreham-Wading River High School created mini works of art on Post-it notes. They kept them on display in the main lobby as sort of a working gallery, and every few weeks Ms. Shepard would add more Post-it note drawings to it.

“It is a great place for students to experiment with various artmaking processes and materials, as well as develop their artistic style and voice,” she said.

Ms. Shepard got the idea from Giant Robot Store in Los Angeles, which invites top artists worldwide to sell their artwork on a Post-it note for $25, making their art more accessible to all people. SWR students charged $5 per sticky note, and the money went toward the art department’s Senior Scholarship. They raised just under $300 from sales.

A special thanks to WHAM for its donation of a basket that was raffled off during the school’s concert. Paintings created by RISE students were also sold to benefit the scholarship.
