SHS students in the art club have worked on the pieces throughout the year and will sell their art through a bidding process. There will also be a silent auction featuring pieces from local artists from Cleveland. The auction will showcase a variety of art mediums, such as photography, paintings, ceramics and digital art. Proceeds from the auction will go towards Bellefaire JCB, a mental health service for children that the art club has worked with before.


Senior Disha Patel will contribute a painting to the auction that illustrates a cafe during the holidays. According to Patel, she focused on the lighting, reflections and shadows during the painting process.

Disha Patel, along with several other students in art club, have created pieces to sell at the auction.

“I’m excited because this is the first time I have submitted art to the auction, but I’m also nervous since it’ll reach a large audience,” Patel said.

Senior Jahnavi Roychowdhury has said she will also contribute a piece–a digital drawing of a flower that includes a unique circular pattern.
