Painting and Mixed Media students from Ms. Kopf’s and Ms. Schorsch’s classes at OHHS are participating in the “Art in Root” program, through which they will receive one to two visits from a Great Parks’ interpreter with a native animal for natural history presentation, as well as a future trip to the parks to sketch the flora and fauna in our area. Students generated artwork based upon the December visit and selected artworks that were displayed at the regional art exhibitions.  Works exhibited at Miami Whitewater for the regional exhibition were juried by local artists Ann Geise, Mary Lou Holt, Linda Bittner and John Agnew.
