Levittown middle school students had the chance to impress family and friends with their artwork on Tuesday night at the Levittown Library, and they didn't disappoint.

Various drawings and paintings from students at Wisdom Lane and Salk Middle School provided for a variety of interesting sights, but the works also displayed the personality and individuality of their young creators.

"The inspiration was my personality, it’s very fun and creative and free spirited," said Salk eighth grader, Sarah Andreski, who did a drawing of patterns in black and white with a hand drawing the patterns (pictured).

Andreski's artwork took about three weeks to complete and she said she is very grateful the library allowed her to showcase it at the reception.

“It means a lot to me personally, just how much time we put into it, to have it appreciated by people,” Andreski said.

Andreski's friend and classmate, Carissa Giuliano, had two pieces of art on display - one drawing that says her name and the other a picture of Hawaii with a plane flying in (pictured).

"I just like abstract, out of the box things," Giuliano said. "Something that wouldn’t normally be done."

Jacklyn Nogan, Public Relations for the Levittown Library, said this is the first year the library has done a reception for the students, and it won't be the last.

"I felt that because we were having the [receptions] for private artists, why shouldn’t the students also get to have one?" Nogan said. "Their work deserves to be showcased. It gives the parents a chance to come and see their work, which they might not normally get to do, and it gets the community together."

Division and MacArthur High School's artwork will be on display next, starting on Friday, Feb. 15. The high school reception will follow on Tuesday, Feb. 26 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
