Visual Arts


Rotating Elementary Art Exhibits

Each elementary school in Ashland, Holmes and Wayne Counties is invited to exhibit children's artwork at the Tri-County ESC office. The exhibit then rotates to the School Hallway Gallery at Wayne Center for the Arts for a second month of exhibition. Each month one student's artwork is selected as "Best of Show". This artwork is then professionally matted, framed and hung (in rotation) in the following locations: Wayne County Juvenile Court, Child Support Enforcement Agency, Cleveland Clinic - Wooster Pediatric Offices and Tri-County ESC offices. 

The exhibit is designed to:

  • Bring more K-6 children's artwork into the community;
  • Demonstrate the artistic development of K-6 students and the quality of art instruction taking place; and
  • To create an opportunity for elementary visual art teachers to work together to build a sense of unity, community and cooperation.

October 2018

During October come in and browse the artwork of students from Norwayne Elementary School (K-5),  Norwayne Middle School (6),  Norwayne Local School District. These art exhibits will be displayed throughout the Tri-County Educational Service Center the entire month of October.  Feel free to come and take a look at the artwork of our very talented students.

Holmes County "Celebration of the Arts"

Holmes County “Celebration of the Arts” is sponsored by the East Holmes and West Holmes Local Schools. The Holmes County “Celebration of the Arts” is designed to bring about a renewed recognition of the vital place of art and music education in our schools and to support the notion that the study of the arts leads to a fuller, more meaningful life, and that the training and skills gained through visual art and music opens new worlds to all involved. It is fitting for the Holmes County community to recognize that visual art and music education are an essential part of the learning process for our students.

 

Stained Glass Class

Students created a stained glass project, introducing them to the skills needed for more intricate projects.  Crafting with stained glass requires meticulous measurement, precise cutting, and much patience with yourself and the materials.  Students need to be able to take direction, follow safety rules, and persist with a project that will require some ‘do-overs.’  Patience, creativity and precision will paid off in a colorful glass composition.  See below for class projects (photos):
