New Scotland art makes magazine cover

ALBANY, N.Y. (Jan. 31, 2018) – Artwork by New Scotland Elementary School fifth-grader Jacky Nguyen graces the cover of the January 2018 issue of "Language Arts."

       

Nguyen's original piece of art, created when she was in third grade, was spotted in May 2016 at the City School District of Albany's annual 1st Friday art show at the Albany Institute of History and Art. Kelly Wissman, a UAlbany professor and co-editor of "Language Arts," liked the picture so much that she asked for permission to use on the magazine’s cover.

"Language Arts" is a journal that focuses on issues concerning children of preschool through middle-school age. It is published by the National Council of Teachers of English.

  

The November issue of the journal featured the artwork of another Albany student, Isabella Romeo. Now in eighth-grade a William S. Hackett Middle School, Romeo was a sixth-grader at Eagle Point Elementary School when her artwork was selected.

        

The mission of the City School District of Albany is to work in partnership with our diverse community to engage every learner in a robust educational program designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for success. The district serves nearly 9,700 students in 18 elementary, middle and high schools. In addition to neighborhood schools, the district includes several magnet schools and programs, as well as other innovative academic opportunities for students, including four themed academies at Albany High School.
