Logan-Hocking Middle
Submitted by: LHMS Art Department

Youth Art Month is celebrated across our nation during the month of March. An active and thriving arts presence is always an indicator of a community dedicated to enriching the lives of its neighbors. Logan-Hocking Middle School continues to have a strong visual arts department and participation among students in the arts is strong as well.

Logan-Hocking Middle School will kick off Youth Art Month this Friday, March 2nd with their Seedlings Art Exhibit opening at the Bowen House in Logan from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Student artwork will be on display at the Bowen House through March 24th during their normal hours of Wednesday through Saturday from 2:00pm to 5:00pm each day.

The Logan-Hocking Middle School continues to celebrate Youth Art Month by proudly announcing the names of this years student artists who have work accepted in the upcoming Ohio Art Education Association Youth Art Month exhibit and the Young People's Art Exhibit in Columbus, Ohio.
