Ghouls Goblins Ghosts Oh My
Ghouls’n, Goblins’n, Ghosts, Oh My!
Anyone passing through Downtown Sayville during this year’s Fall Festival couldn’t have missed the ghouls, goblins, witches, ghosts, headless horseman, and assorted whimsical decorations adorning the storefronts. Upon the request of the Sayville Chamber, Sayville High School and Middle School art students returned for the Annual Halloween Windows Paintings, which fortunately, despite rainy-day delays, were completed in the nick of time for the Fall Festival.
Not just any artwork goes on display. The window paintings are the result of a selection process. Once members of the Sayville Art Department review the Halloween-themed sketches submitted by the students, they determine which designs would be most suitable for those Sayville merchants who have agreed to showcase student works. Again, this year, the delightfully ghoulish displays were well appreciated by the merchants and patrons alike.
However, it is important to note each year that the success of this venture is due to the long-standing partnership between the Kiwanis Club members, who have generously donated painting supplies, and the Sayville Art Department. Thanks to such unwavering support, countless generations of Sayville art students have been allowed to express the spirit of this bewitching season on the storefront windows.
