Student shares art with Medina superintendent, local business
MEDINA – A Medina student has created three paintings of prominent local scenes that will hang in the office of the superintendent of schools.
Jeff Evoy, the district superintendent, has lots of student artwork on his office walls. Evoy asked Hoffman to make the paintings of Medina scenes.
Last month Hoffman, a student with autism, presented Evoy with paintings of the Erie Canal, the apple sculpture by the canal and the railroad depot made of Medina sandstone.
“I’ve always admired his artwork,” Evoy said about Hoffman. “He’s quite a young man.”
Hoffman also is participating in the “Palettes of Orleans,” a project through the Chamber of Commerce that will have 75 palettes painted and displayed by local merchants through at least the summer. Hoffman painted a palette with a canal theme that will be in The Book Shoppe in Medina.
