OHHS Art and Design Painting the Town!

Over the course of the hot summer months, OHHS Art and Design artists have been working to beautify our city! Check out the fabulous murals they created around town below:

Cincinnati Paints by Numbers: Fiona

This summer marked the launch of a new mural series by ArtWorks: Cincinnati Paints-By-Numbers. The rotating mural project provides the public the opportunity to purchase a ticket and paint alongside the ArtWorks team. The inaugural theme for 2018 was Cincinnati’s favorite hippo, Fiona. OHHS Art and Design junior Brooklyn Hart worked as an Apprentice on this project, designed by Lucie Rice, which was selected by a jury and public voting earlier in the spring.

Paint the Town Red

While the students were busy at work beautifying Cincinnati this summer, OHHS Art and Design teacher Jamie Schorsch was creating a large scale mural for the Miami University Regionals: Hamilton Campus. Schorsch was a part of a team of three other local artists working with StreetSpark on the creation of the mural.
