At LHS – it’s raining art
Posted Thursday, April 3, 2014
Members of the Loveland High School (LHS) Art Club partnered with the Cincinnati Zoo to participate in the Fifth Annual Party for the Planet. The club designed a lightning-bug jar inspired rain barrel that will be auctioned off at the April 24 event.
“We knew that it supported a good cause in preserving our water and helping our community,” said LHS Senior Jenna Pauly. “By making the rain barrel attractive we hope that people will want to own and use one around their home.”
“We truly want the young people to seek out and explore the various opportunities around their community,” said Jennifer Grant, LHS Art Club co-advisor.
“We want them to realize that art has an impact and it's not just in the classroom," added fellow advisor Megan Burns.
This is the second year the LHS Art Club has participated in the Cincinnati Zoo art auction event. Club members were responsible for the design, delivery and execution of all the work on the rain barrel. Cincinnati Zoo hosts the Party on the Planet from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, April 24.
