Art: a three-letter word that opens the door for creativity, innovation and myriad possibilities.
Much more than a canvas in a rectangular frame, art is three-dimensional, sensory, and it spurs imagination and creativity.
It’s especially exciting when that ingenuity comes from students whose enthusiasm offers everyone new, different perspectives.
The Salem News is launching an occasional series to acknowledge students on the North Shore who are gifted in the arts.
The region’s high schools have nominated students who excel in the visual, performing or musical arts. Kicking off the series are three seniors at Bishop Fenwick High School who have received accolades for their work, whether it be singing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpture, photography or animation.
We asked the nominees — Nina Groom, Samantha Keiran and Nicholas Tambini — questions related to their artistic talents, accomplishments and future plans. Their responses are below.
