The OAEA (Ohio Art Education Association) High School Show showcases Ohio’s Emerging Artist artistic efforts. The Emerging Artist show is dedicated to showcasing artistic efforts of students who have only had the chance to take one or two art classes in high school. The competitive professional forum is intended to prepare young artists for their creative future in college or in an art career.
The Emerging Artist show will be on display September 10th through October 20th in the 2nd floor lobby of the State Teachers Retirement Building (STRS), 275 East Broad Street, in Columbus, OH. To celebrate the teachers and students there will be a reception on October, 20th at the STRS building. The students will be awarded with certificates, prizes and some works will be selected in different categories for special rewards. The ceremony will begin at 2:00 and end around 3:00.
One hundred fifty-three out of two hundred-forty pieces of artwork were selected for this juried show from the nine OAEA regions in the state of Ohio. This show is designed to help motivate and inspire new artists to excel in areas of drawing, painting, sculpture, crafts, computer art, photography and printing. Everyone involved should be proud of the students who inspire, creative thinking, problem solving and skillful techniques.
Congratulations to the following students from Ms. Schorsch’s Drawing and Printmaking and Painting and Mixed Media classes for being selected to exhibit at this year’s Emerging Artist show.
