Students Earn Recognition

Ontario Middle School is proud to announce that two of our students, Kailey McCray and Sunshine Liu will be receiving state-wide recognition for their artwork. Seventh grade art student, Kailey McCray was recently selected as an exhibitor for the 36th Annual Young People’s Art Exhibition sponsored by the Ohio Art Education Association. There are nine regions represented in the OAEA, which includes 125 student art pieces.

Kailey, and her family, have been asked to attend the March 5th Recognition Ceremony at the Rhodes State Office Tower in Columbus. Her artwork will be on display from February 28th to March 26th.

Also receiving high praise is Sunshine Liu, a sixth grade student. Sunshine had a piece of her artwork chosen for exhibit at the 2016 Youth Art Month Show sponsored by the Ohio Art Education Association.

Sunshine will be recognized March 5th at the State Teachers Retirement Systems (STRS) building in Columbus. Her piece will also be on display from February 28th to March 26th. Great job to the girls and their art teacher, Mrs. Garberich.

Industrial Tech Classes Vectorize Images

Mr. Miller’s Industrial Technology students are using Adobe Illustrator to design vectorized images that will be cut on a Roland Vinyl cutter. Students learned that images having been traced and vectorized no longer rely on pixels, but geometric formulas to create the shapes. Vectorized images can be enlarged without any change to the quality of the image; unlike images dependent on pixels.

Once their design has been cut, the students weed (remove) the parts they want to have etched into glass mirrors. They then find the centers of both the image and mirror to properly align each.

After careful placement, the students must protect all areas of the mirror they do not want etched. The final product is a mirror that they can keep for a lifetime. This is always a project the students love to do.
