Student Accomplishments

Emerging Arts Exibit 
Ohio Art Education Association is proud to announce that 3 students Taylor Gibbons, Jade Wesson, and Karl Xia  have artwork accepted in our annual Emerging Artist Exhibition.  The art exhibited was created for Ohio students in grades nine through twelve.  These works are on display at the State Teachers Retirement Systems (STRS) building, 275 East Broad Street, in Columbus, Ohio on September 10th through October 20st.  The exhibition is sponsored by the Ohio Art Education Association which is the professional organization for art teachers in Ohio with a membership of close to two thousand educators.  Among its many professional endeavors, OAEA works to promote art education and recognizes quality student art through various exhibits sponsored during the year at both the state and regional levels.  

One hundred fifty-three out of two hundred-forty pieces of artwork was 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 and teachers who inspire, creative thinking, problem solving and skillful techniques.    

To celebrate the teachers and students there will be a reception on October, 20st at the STRS building.  The ceremony will begin at 2:00 and end around 3:00.  The students will be awarded with certificates, prizes and some works will be selected in different categories for special rewards.  

High School Honors Band

    • Honors Band
David Li, Heidi Hazelrig and Kate McFadden will be representing AOA  this year in the OMEA district 7 High School Honors Band event this weekend.  The High School Honor Band event brings together students from high schools all over NE Ohio to form a group of over 100 people that will be coming together to rehearse and  learn their music, and perform a concert together after only 2 days.  It is an intense and rewarding experience and I am excited they get to be a part of it. 
If YOU would like to come and support our students, and listen to some great music, the concert will be this Saturday November 10th at Cleveland State University @ 4:00 pm.  Please consider coming for an hour and seeing what its all about. It's really wonderful to see what these students can put together in just 2 rehearsals.  I guarantee you will not be disappointed.  Concert details below.
