Teachers Featured in Local Exhibits

Sunflower Pine-Richland students are not the only ones being recognized for their artwork. Three PR teachers earned the privilege to showcase their art in area exhibits.

Pine-Richland Middle School Art Teacher Holly Angeloff’s sunflower painting was featured in the North Hills Art Center Show “A Touch of Blue.” The show benefitted the Highmark Caring Place in Wexford. The opening reception and Awards Ceremony was hosted on February 8, 2020. Students from her class enjoyed the sunflower painting painted by Ms. Angeloff. She has been teaching students to explore the use of value to create realism.
