OHHS Art and Design Student Recognized with “Coup de Coeur” Award!

Posted on: June 28, 2023 10:00 am

Earlier this year, Ms. Schorsch’s Drawing and Printmaking students completed Drypoint Etching submissions for the USA Miniprints for Peace and Justice. Students researched the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights and selected an Article for their inspiration in voicing their hopes and concerns related to issues of peace and justice.

In addition to having their work selected for inclusion in the exhibition, one OHHS Art and Design student was selected for recognition for the “Coup de Coeur” award. The “Coup de Coeur” award is given to an artist whose work had a profound emotional impact on viewers. Kevin Cotterell’s piece, “Article 3”, was selected for its message as a part of this year’s exhibition.

I picked article 3 of the UN Declaration of Human Rights. I learned other countries do not share the same freedoms that we have in the US and they have to fight for their rights each day when we are just given them in the US and just expect to have them. The images I chose conveyed well my statement. The world would be a much better place if every country would give their people the human rights they deserve to have. Also treated with respect by their government they might then not revolt or migrate to other countries that treat them like people, not like objects.

The 3rd annual challenge and exhibit of Miniprints for Peace and Justice by American Artists and Artists living in the USA, launched by SOS ART is now available for online viewing! Presented in the online gallery are the works submitted for both the SOS ART 2023 exhibition and the 2023 USA Miniprints. Among the exhibiting artists are 8 Drawing and Printmaking students, along with their teacher Jamie Schorsch, representing OHHS Art and Design.
