Hundreds of students and their families were on hand last month for the crowning of the area’s top middle school artists at the 34th Annual Private School Art Invitational. All three of Dallas’ Jewish day schools showed themselves to be accomplished and competitive in the arts.
Students participated from dozens of Metroplex schools, including Greenhill School, Parish Episcopal School, The Hockaday School and St. Mark’s School of Texas. Akiba Academy hosted this year, having more than 200 pieces of student art hung in their lobby for three weeks.
From Akiba, Adam Eber earned honorable mention in the sixth-grade, three-dimensional division. Ari Blumberg was an honorable mention candidate in the seventh-grade, three-dimensional division. Gabriela Schwarz-Mullins also received honorable mention in the eighth-grade, two-dimensional division.
Chavy Rothstein from Levine finished in third place in the sixth-grade, two-dimensional division.
From Torah Day School, Eliyahu Nathan won the fifth-grade, two-dimensional division. He also earned second place best of show in the two-dimensional division. Batsheva Tropper was an honorable mention selection in the seventh-grade, three-dimensional division.
