On March 2nd, LHMS art instructors, several of their students, families, and administrators in downtown Columbus for the Ohio Art Education Associationís state level art shows. The Young Peopleís Art Exhibition and the Christie Casper Ohio Youth Art Month Exhibition are held simultaneously within a few blocks of one another each year.

2019 marks the 39th year for the annual Young Peopleís Art Exhibition, held at the Rhodes State Office Tower on Broad Street, Columbus. The exhibit represents Ohio students in grades pre-kindergarten through eighth and is on display until March 23rd during regular business hours.

One hundred thirty-one pieces were selected for the juried show from the eight regions of the state that represent OAEA, the professional organization for art teachers in Ohio. OAEA works to promote the arts and recognizes quality student art throughout the state through various exhibits at state and regional levels.

Logan-Hocking Middle School placed (3) students, from a field of thousands, in the YPAE state level exhibition. Cassidy Bledsoe chose watercolor and ink for her fun and happy, surrealistic work. Cassidy is the student of Mrs. Suzanne Oldham. Avery Cook-Porterís watercolor and ink rendition of a red panda is very well drawn and her colors show depth and dimension. Mrs. Heather Hacker is Averyís art teacher. Finally, Camryn Torongeauís paper collage of her family cat shows great skill in paper cutting and craftsmanship. She is the student of Mrs. Roxanna Lehman. All three students received certificates and awards and recognition at the opening reception and awards ceremony held that Saturday morning.

It is a distinct honor for any student to have artwork chosen for either of these state level exhibitions. This is the 31st consecutive year, out of the 39 year history of the Young Peopleís Art Exhibition, for Logan-Hocking Middle School to have student works selected for exhibit.
