Paid Opportunity: St Michael School in Sharonville

The St Michael School in Sharonville are looking for a local artist who could potentially assist them with a gift to the school and is able to work with a limited budget. Every year the eighth-grade class gives a gift to the school. One of the suggestions from the students and the principal was to update an area outside the classrooms. The students use this area intermittently throughout the year depending on the weather. It has been painted by a previous class years ago and it is looking for a refresh. For more information, please reach out to Angela Vaske at
