Teacher Liaisons

IHSAE-168.jpg
This experience has truly been a game changer for the OHS Visual Art Program, providing countless tuition and summer workshop scholarships, and awards. What other venue could so many of my students go to submit a body of work and or individual work to have some of the top art programs, in the nation, award them with Portfolio Scholarships and many other awards? IHSAE really and appropriately treats our visual artists students like the “super stars” that they are!
— Michael Jon Skura, Department Chair of Fine Arts at Oswego High School
