PSJHS showcases students’ art, music

Port St. Joe High School’s artistically inclined students had the opportunity to showcase their hard work at Thursday’s ‘Night of the Arts.’

The event, which showcased works from throughout the schools art and music programs, invited hundreds of members of the public, who crowded into rows of chairs in the school’s cafeteria or paroozed displays featuring oil paintings, sketches, weavings or sculptures.

Performances from the Port St. Joe High School Band of Gold, the Guitar Class, the Odyssey of the Mind team and others dazzled onlookers.

As the event came to a close, many members of the audience leapt to their feet with applause, then enjoyed refreshments and browsed the displays.

“Night of the Arts for PSJHS was a huge success!” the school wrote in a Facebook post following the event.
