The works by Jade, Anjali and Djoser will be included in the 2018 Ohio Art Education Association’s Young People’s Art Exhibition at the Rhodes State Office Tower. Work by David, Savannah and Leo will be displayed in the Youth Art Month Exhibition at the State Teacher’s Retirement Systems building.  

The Young People’s Art Exhibition will showcase the talent of 130 students in kindergarten through the eighth grade. The Youth Art Month Exhibition will feature 135 works of art from the nine regions represented by the OAEA.

Both exhibits are sponsored by the Ohio Art Education Association (OAEA) and will be displayed from February 17 to March 16. A recognition ceremony for each exhibit will be held on March 3 in Columbus.

The students study art under the tutelage of Lower School Art teacher Hilary Carvitti and Middle School Art teachers Samantha Setterlin and Paula Yarnell-Sundermann.
