Students shine in Revere art show

The Revere Local Schools PTAs held the annual “Revere Celebration of the Arts” April 29-May 2 in the Revere High School Auxiliary Gym. Artwork from Revere elementary, middle and high school students was on display including drawings, paintings, sculptures and photography.

There were 24 senior booths showcasing their finest pieces. Twenty-eight high school artists were Scholastic Art Award regional winners, and many earned gold and silver awards, meaning their work is on display at Kent State University Stark Campus.

Revere High School junior Kavana Lokesh was one of 319 chosen from a pool of 8,113 entries for the 2024 Ohio Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition. One of her art pieces will be displayed at the Rhodes Office Tower in Columbus. She was also one of 25 students to receive the Governor’s Award of Excellence.

The Revere PTAs again participated in the Ohio/National PTA Reflections Program, designed to recognize students’ endeavors in literature, music composition, photography, visual arts, dance choreography and film production. Twenty-eight of the Revere entries advanced to the Ohio PTA level and five won awards. One piece advanced to the National PTA level for additional award consideration. ∞
