The Lynbrook School District’s Department of Fine and Performing Arts offers a comprehensive K-12 curriculum for students in music and the visual arts. The overriding objective of the program is focused on providing instruction for all students in these areas whether the goal is arts as a vocation, an avocation, or to enhance our students aural and visual awareness and appreciation of the arts. 

With the strong support of our community, the Board of Education and Central Administration we are proud to have earned the distinction of Best Communities for Music Education by the NAMM Foundation once again this year. Together with an award winning Fine Arts program Lynbrook Schools continues to provide our students with exceptional experiences in the arts.

Mr. Sena’s artwork shown at Islip Museum

On August 3rd at the Islip Art Museum, LHS Art teacher Mr. Tom Sena and fellow art educator/artist Ms. Lisa Federici from Mepham High School presented their first collaborative piece together as part of the museum’s “The Art of Collaboration “exhibit.

As working artists and art educators with over 35 years of combined experience, Mr. Sena and Ms. Federici’s “ephemerality” marks their first collaboration. The work synthesizes Ms. Federici’s exploratory practice with recycled sari silks and hand sewing techniques with a piece that captures Mr. Sena’s early forays into his artistic process. The surface the skull is applied to is a section of his very first drafting table purchased during his sophomore year in high school. The marks visible are tangible evidence of his past artistic endeavors. The skull is her perspective on the Vanitas Movement. The piece is representative of regeneration and new life, both through the surface and the fabric. The recycled sari silks are sourced from factory floors in India and repurposed for sale by women’s collectives, giving the women additional avenues of income. By using the material in this way on this surface, the piece comes together in a new form: giving their past forms a sense of ephemerality. 

Congratulation to both on such a successful collaboration!
