When it comes to art, there’s always something new to learn. That’s why last month’s focus on student art was so much fun — it was a chance to learn great things like color, composition and how to express one’s self with confidence. The teachers? Students from Seton Catholic School, Hudson Middle School, Hudson High School and Western Reserve Academy.
At Uncommon Art, colorful work from third through fifth graders was displayed on one wall and detailed figurative studies by Western Reserve Academy art students on the other. The Learned Owl had the youngest artists from Seton Catholic School and some of their work featured the trademark owl.
Further south, artwork by Hudson Middle School students was on display at The Red Twig, Hudson Sampler, Olive My Heart and Shack in the Back.
Hudson High school art students took part in the Hop, too, and were on hand to talk about their art and techniques. They were Julia Goodson, Western Reserve School of Cooking; Gretchen Weaver, MOD; Taylor Hoppes, Epiphany; Adam Martin, Open Door Coffee; Shelby Johnson, Hudson Fine Art & Framing; and John Girard and Caroline Bingham, (Sub)urban sit.
Many thanks to the teachers who pulled together the student work – Jessica Chmura, Seton Catholic School; Carolyn Huber, Hudson High School; Alan Doe, Western Reserve Academy; and Hudson Middle School. We were pleased to showcase students of all ages at about 20 locations on the Hop.
And watching the youngest artists pose with their artwork for family and friends was a great reminder: we need to support and encourage the next generation of artists.
