Forty pieces of student artwork have been selected for inclusion in the annual art show of the Illinois Art Education Association. This year over 500 entries from grades K-12 were submitted from IAEA members. “The judging process was long and labored due to the tremendous amount of high quality work submitted
this year” said show chairperson Venessa Hardy of Lisle Senior High School.
This past year’s Student Show Reception was held on Saturday November 12th at the Marriott Hotel in Normal, Illinois as part of the IAEA’s Professional Development Conference. “Congratulations to all the talented young artists that had their art selected for the exhibit, it is quite an honor to be selected for this show. It is exciting to see the talent these young people possess. A big thank you to the artists hard work and to their teachers for their dedication to the field of art education.” said Dorothy Bennett, IAEA president. Students and their families were invited to attend the awards ceremony to acknowledge and honor the winners. Each student was presented a certificate from Dorothy Bennett and also received a prize bag filled with art supplies contributed from Sax Arts/School Specialty, Sargent Arts, Crayola, Ed Hoys International, Ceramic Supply Chicago, Nasco Art Supplies, Mayco, Esther’s Place, and Fimo Clay.
The art show will be traveling throughout the state from November 2011 through the end of June 2012. The tour began at the Iroquois West High School in Gilman for the months November and December. From there it went to Thomas Metcalf School in Normal for January, in late January through February at Dr. Scholl Gallery of Marmion Academy in Aurora, in March at Pecatonica Elementary School, in April at Bureau Valley High School in Manlius, in May at Coal City High School, and the final destination is at the Chillicothe Public Library in June.
