Visual Arts

The Visual Arts Program provides instruction in artistic mediums such as:  drawing, painting, ceramics, and photography.

Each year, Stivers artists compete in the Ohio Governor's Youth Art Exhibition.  2010 Top 25 Winners included two Stivers students, Zuri Ali and Jessica McLaughlin.  Stivers students also compete each year in the Congressional Art Competition.

Two popular events each year include the annual Photography fundraiser; and "Soup Dressed Up", the Annual Ceramics Fundraiser.

While visiting Stivers, don't forget to visit our own Arts Gallery in the main hallway.
