High school art students recently attended a performance of the one-actor play “Vincent” at the Patchogue Theatre for the Performing Arts. Accompanied by art teachers Lynne Edsall and Nancy Randazzo, the students had the opportunity to learn about one of the world’s most renowned artists through a unique perspective.

Written by Emmy nominated actor, Leonard Nimoy, the one-man production examined the life of acclaimed artist Vincent Van Gogh as told through letter correspondences with his brother Theo. The educational program shed a light on some the struggles and thoughts behind several of his most famous works. The students viewed Van Gogh’s works on the stage through projection as the narrator shared their fascinating back stories.
