Brush Art Continues to Amaze!

If you weren’t already aware, the Brush Art Department is one of the crown jewels of the SEL District.  Every year, Brush art students win awards at local, state, and national competitions and a surprising number of students go on to pursue fine arts or applied arts careers. Brush will be one of the 11 regions in the state of Ohio for the Governor’s show this year. Brush Art teachers will take in an enormous amount of student artwork to be judged regionally, as the most central region in Northeastern Ohio. Works selected by judges at Brush will go to Columbus for a state final judging. The event is from 7:30 -5pm Saturday, March 5th.

In keeping with tradition,  Brush students swept the recent Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Brush students received 22 awards at the 36th Annual Scholastics Art & Writing competition. This exhibit showcases Cuyahoga County’s finest young talent. Judges sorted through 3,000 pieces of artwork and writing samples before choosing the finalists that were on display  at the Cleveland Institute of Art’s Reinberger Gallery from January 14- 30th.

All pieces receiving the highest merit of “Gold Key” will continue to be judged at the national competition in New York City.
