The Scholastic Art and Writing Awards ceremony, held at the School of Creative and Performing Arts on Friday, Feb. 1, honored young artists and writers from the Greater Cincinnati Tri-State area. The students’ art was also shown in a special exhibition at the Art Academy of Cincinnati from Jan. 28 through Feb. 8. Acclaimed artists who had also received Scholastic awards include Andy Warhol, Sylvia Plath and Stephen King.
The exhibition included work from SENIOR Arthur Schmid, Alexandra Franz, ‘23 and Julia Johnson, ‘22. Schmid’s Drawing and Illustration portfolio of eight pieces won a Gold Medal portfolio award, one of only sixteen in the country, and was showcased on a separate floor with the rest of the winning portfolios. Work from students of WHHS art teachers Donald Stocker and Kim Watling could be found on the fifth floor of the AAC.
