masks

Central High School students wear the masks they created during a “Masks and Bigheads” workshop in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month.

Students enrolled in St. Croix Central High School’s foreign languages and fine arts programs celebrated National Hispanic Heritage Month and Virgin Islands/Puerto Rico Friendship Day in October with a “Masks and Bigheads” workshop by Puerto Rican Artist Kenneth Meléndez.

Students created artwork while learning about the Hispanic culture, particularly that of Puerto Rico. The afterschool program was a collaboration between Torres and art teacher Niarus Benjamin-Walker.
