About the 2018-2019 Student Show

Congratulations to all 45 Student Artists and their Art Educators for being selected to the 2018-2019 IAEA Student Art Show!!!

The 2018-2019 IAEA Student Art Show kicks off at the 2018 IAEA Fall Conference November 8th–10th, 2018 at the Bloomington-Normal Marriott Hotel & Conference Center on Saturday, November 10th in the Normal Theater from 1:00pm-3: 00 pm, and then will travel up and down, and all around the State of Illinois.

This wonderful Kindergarten-12th Grade Student Art Show demonstrates to the public the breadth of experience, content, and connections young people in Illinois are getting and making through their Art Programs.

Each year The Illinois Art Education Association members are invited to submit 10 images of stellar artwork created in their classroom. All art submissions are 2-dimensional artworks produced through a variety of techniques; painting, drawing, collage, mixed media, weaving, metalwork, photography, and technology.

This year 634 pieces of 2D art from students in grades Kindergarten through High School including 51 artworks highlighting the importance of celebrating the exceptional artwork created by Special Needs Students were submitted by seventy-five Illinois Art Teachers.

From the artwork submitted, 40 student pieces, plus 5 pieces from students with Special Needs Students, were chosen.

The judges for the 2018-2019 Student Art Show were art teachers representing the elementary, middle school & high school levels, and they judged areas that have taught before but do not teach now. The judging process was long & labored due to the tremendous amount of high-quality

work submitted. Thank you to our judges: Heidi O’Hanley, Venessa Hardy, Kerry Parrish, Mary Ellen Bebber, and Angie Golden.

This year’s poster, as well as last year’s poster, were designed by Angie Golden.

Eachoftheforty-fivepiecesareprofessionallymounted&framed. The show opens at the IAEA Conference with the student artist reception & awards ceremony. (Each student will receive their artwork in the professionally cut mat at the end of the show year.)

The Student Artist Reception will be held at the 2018 IAEA Conference on Saturday, November 10th from 1:00-3:0 00 pm During this celebration, student artists with their family, friends, and art teachers will be exuberantly celebrated for their artistic talents!
