SAS Art Department Celebrates Black History Month

Friday, February 18th, 2022In honor of Black History Month, Syracuse Academy of Science high school's art department shares with you its collaborative piece featuring the Syracuse Academy of Science (SAS) Choir and artwork from students in Art 8, Printmaking, Creative Arts Drawing, and Painting.

This month, Ms. Carlson's music class has studied music theory, singing, and recording techniques to perform the award-winning song "Stand Up" by Cynthia Erivo. "Stand Up" is featured in the Academy Award-nominated movie Harriet. In this video, you will hear the impressive vocal and percussion performance from SAS Choir, as the Atoms sing, stomp, and create a beat and rhythm to the song "Stand Up." The Atoms selected the song "Stand Up" for its powerful, positive message and contemporary resonance.

The musical recording is accompanied by moving masterpieces from Mrs. Merrithew's art classes such as Art 8, Creative Arts Drawing & Painting, and Printmaking. Students submitted works in different art mediums ranging from dry-point printing to large mixed media portraits. Atoms in Creative Arts drew inspiration from the works of Aaron Douglas, who is often called the 'Father of African American Art.'

We want to thank all of our students and teachers, Ms. Carlson and Mrs. Merrithew, for their incredible talent, hard work, and creativity. The students' and teachers' efforts and achievements have certainly not gone unnoticed.
