Amity School was proud to welcome local New York City artist Barbara Friedman as a guest speaker for the school’s AP art program. Friedman spoke with AP students and other members of the student body for close to two hours about her progression and life as a working artist in the greater New York City area. She has shown her oil paintings in galleries around the world and proved to be a great source of inspiration for students. In addition to showing her own work, she also spoke with AP students about their concentration for their portfolios. Friedman’s wealth of knowledge coupled with her generous personality created a wonderful environment for talking about art and inspiring career choices in the arts for our Amity students.
