Congratulations to all 45 Student Artists and their Art Educators for being selected to the 2017-2018 IAEA Student Art Show!!!
The 2017-2018 IAEA Student Art Show kicks off at the Q Center in St. Charles on Saturday, December 2nd, 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 young people in Illinois are getting through their Art Programs.
Each year The Illinois Art Education Association members are invited to submit 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, metal work, photography, and technology.
This year 720 pieces of 2D art from students in grades Kindergarten through High School including 37 artworks highlighting the importance of celebrating the exceptional artwork created by Special Needs Students were submitted by sixty-six Illinois Art Teachers.
From the artwork submitted, 40 student pieces, plus 5 pieces from students with Special Needs Students, were chosen. The judges were art teachers representing the elementary, middle school & high school levels, and judged in their respective art areas. The judging process was long & labored due to the tremendous amount of high quality work submitted!
Each of the forty-five pieces are professionally mounted & framed. The show opens at the IAEA Conference at the Q Center, St. Charles on December 2, 2017, with a 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 2017 IAEA Conference on Saturday December 2nd, 2017 from 9:00 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. During this celebration, student artists with their family, friends, and art teachers will be celebrated for their artistic talents.
The Student Show travels to the Illinois School Board Association State Conference, Palatine Public Library, Lisle Library, Amita Adventist Hinsdale Medical Center, and school galleries at all grade levels throughout the state from November 2017- August 2018.
