General Information

We strive to bring outstanding artists to our community each year as Artists-In- Residence. This year Valley High School art students and their teacher, Mrs. Kelly Montgomery, worked with artist and printmaker, Klaire Smith, to create linoleum block prints. Art I students created Christmas card designs and prints and Advanced Art students created large snowflake prints (based on microscopic photographs of snowflakes). Klaire met with the students on a daily basis and began the residency on September 23. Final prints were made and the residency concluded on October 4. 

The school is partnering with the Friends of Portsmouth group as the snowflake prints will be incorporated into banners which will be hung in downtown Portsmouth during Winterfest.The project was coordinated by Sharee Price, South Central Ohio ESC Gifted Services Coordinator.

Congratulations to Valley High School art students and their teacher, Mrs. Montgomery, for the successful work they have completed! Special thanks to our sponsors: the Scioto Foundation, Southern Ohio Medical Center and the Portsmouth Rotary Club as well as to Kelly Babcock for sharing her time and her talents with the students as she creates the banners.


Thank you to our sponsors!
