LOGAN — The Logan Hocking School District has announced the opening of the first Chieftain Academy Art Show, now on display at the Maya Burrito Gallery in downtown Logan.
The show features artwork from students who are enrolled in the Chieftain Academy (digital learning). “This platform does not currently have art in the curriculum, so we wanted to give the students a chance to express themselves,” explained Suzanne Oldham, visual art instructor and fine art department head at Logan-Hocking Middle School, and coordinator of the Maya Burrito Gallery. “All ages were invited to participate, and we received entries from first grade all the way up to 9th. One student even sent work all the way from sunny California!”
The display has no set theme, so students were able to show off their creativity and come up with their own ideas. There are a variety of drawings and paintings with subject matter ranging from magna art to landscapes. The display runs through the end of February and the hours are Monday through Friday 11 a.m. – 8p.m., and Saturday 11 a.m. – 3p.m. So if you happen to be in downtown Logan, stop in to the Maya Burrito Co. at 12 E. Main St. and take a look at some great art!
