Canarsie’s South Shore Educational Campus, located at 6565 Flatlands Avenue, was the center of the Brooklyn art world Friday night as Community School District 18 held its Night of the Arts Showcase.

The evening featured a wide array of visual artwork pieces from P.S./I.S. 66, P.S. 115 Daniel Mucatel, P.S. 135 Sheldon Brookner, I.S. 285 Meyer Levin, P.S. 219 Kennedy-King, M.S. 588 Middle School of Art and Philosophy, M.S. 763 Brooklyn Science and Engineering Academy and Cultural Academy for the Arts and Sciences.

P.S. 219 also showcased the work of Jerell Stanley, a graduate of the school, in a section called “Evolution of the Creative Mind and the Gifted Yong Artist.”

P.S. 115’s STEAM Program students submitted works that merged science and art for a truly educational and fun display while P.S. 135 students went the traditional route of drawings and mask designs.
