Lancaster High School Art Spotlight
Congratulations to the most recent honoree, Hannah Sheets (junior), for her Mystery Mansion ink drawing!

As part of the Fall 2021 Ohio Art Education Association’s (OAEA) Emerging Artist Exhibition, several Lancaster High School (LHS) students' artwork was selected. Their work was displayed at the Columbus College of Art & Design gallery from the beginning of October through the closing reception on November 7.

The OAEA High School Show is dedicated to showcasing Ohio's Emerging Artist artistic efforts. The hope is to recognize budding talent and provide a professional forum for young people to experience competition, something they will encounter in their college applications, portfolio reviews and future art careers in college.

“Hannah strives to learn new art skills and create high level final artworks. The hours spent on her drawing reflect in its selection for a state exhibit,” Mrs. Shannon Fish, LHS Art teacher.
