Third Annual WSCAE Art Expo

Saturday marked the third annual West Suburban Consortium for Academic Excellence Art Expo featuring 525 artworks from 52 schools in the region representing 15 different K - 8 school districts.  It was a rainy day, but we still had close to 2,000 visitors!  The event was held at the beautiful Cheney Mansion in Oak Park.

The Oak Park Art League had professional artists on site to draw, sculpt and paint with the students.  Blick Art Materials had a booth on site for students to make a piece of artwork and also raffled off art supplies.  Sax Art Materials, part of School Specialty donated art supplies for each student in the show.  The Illinois Art Education Association donated snacks to keep the teachers hydrated and energized during the event.

Hester had 9 artists featured in the show: Ethan Rodriguez, Eliana Caron, Jonathan Gonzalez, Emily Kwasny, Yulissa Mendez, Nicthe Quezada, Habram Hernandez, Alyssa Cruz and Amber Bautista.  Eliana was one of three lucky winners to be awarded a $100 gift card donated by Blick Art Materials to purchase art supplies to help her continue her love of art.

Special thanks to Mrs. Kozin, Mrs. Castaneda and Mrs. Pausa for attending the event to support the D84 students!
