Each year The Cincinnati Art Museum engages young artists to display their artwork at the 10×10 Teen Art Expo.
This year, because the museum is closed, they were unable to display the amazing work from youth all across our region. Instead, the museum will present the first-ever digital expo. This year, artists were asked to respond to the topic of “Dreams.” Our Lady of Visitation Seventh graders Megan M., Hannah K. and Lily T. have artwork on display in this virtual exhibit.
Congratulations to Kelli S. (grade 8) who won a silver medal in photography at the national level of the Scholastic Art Competition. Scholastics is the nation’s largest, longest-running, most prestigious art competition for students in grades 7–12. Last year, over 340,000 works were submitted and only about 2,700 received recognition at the national level. Congratulations Kelli!!
The following Art projects can be completed while we are out of school due to the COVID-19 school closure. They are considered optional, however credit will be applied to the student’s Art effort grades for Trimester 3.
Please email a picture of the completed project to firstname.lastname@example.org. Extra credit will be given to those who submit art projects by Friday, May 22nd. We love to see our students being creative at school and at home!
