Visually Literate High School Art Exhibition
20149813129451_image.jpg imageTo be "visually literate" means being able to gain meaning from what we see and being able to communicate meaning to others through the images we create. Each year Scioto County high schools along with Oak Hill High School are invited to submit up to 15 works of art for judging to become part of the Visually Literate High School Art Show.  

Through the judging process the 50 top pieces of art are chosen to be included in this very selective show. The show will be on exhibit from May 10 through May 18, 2017 in the Appleton Gallery at Shawnee State University. There will be a Closing Reception on May 18, 2017 in the Fine Arts Center at Shawnee State University starting at 5:30 p.m., with the Awards Ceremony beginning at 6:00 p.m.

In celebration of Youth Art Month, the Local History Department of the Portsmouth Public Library displays "Youthful Visions", an annual exhibition of artwork created by Scioto County High School art students.

The display consists of both two-dimensional and three-dimensional works in a variety of media. During the exhibit, bookmarks designed by the students are available to library patrons.

The Memory Project
2015813132444146_image.JPG imageEach year advanced high school art students create portraits of children living in orphanages in other countries as part of a nationally-known program called The Memory Project.

This project allows our students to make a contribution to the world through their artistic talents and provides children in third-world contries with a portrait of themselves (which is something they would never likely have otherwise). Portraits are created by our students and delivered to the children in the orphanages. A photograph or video is taken of the children receiving their portraits and that is sent back to our students.
