Westlake-Westshore Arts Council Promotes Visiting Artists, Deutschman Studio Demo, and Community of Fine Arts Juried Exhibition

Award winning visual journalists Andrea Levy and Chris Morris, both of the Plain Dealer,showed and discussed a prolific number of illustrations and filled second semester classrooms with energy during their time as visiting artists at Westlake High School. Examples of their art, as companion to text, were sometimes humorous and other times serious. Their oeuvre proved them perpetually engaged and insatiably involved in their occupation, inspiring to both students and faculty. The classroom visits were arranged by the W-WAC.
