WSCOYA: West Suburban Consortium of Young Artists First Annual Art Show

As a celebration of the strong foundation of art in our schools, the West Suburban Consortium of Academic Excellence, launched a new art show bringing together 13 school districts and 52 schools for one huge celebration of art!  The number of artworks submitted from each school was proportionate to their enrollment, so District #84 was allotted 36 artworks, 12 from Hester.  

It was EXTREMELY hard to select only 12 artworks from the over 2,000 works we have created this school year!  The following Hester Students had art on display in the show: 

8th Grade: 
Alexandra Dato: Lichtenstein Inspired Self-Portrait
Adrian Velazquez: Shark Clay Container
Gianna Petrucci: Gelatin Print
Yoselin Roman: Texture and Pattern Name Art

7th Grade: 
Michaela Klein: Linoleum Reduction Print
Cristina Martinez: Linoleum Reduction Print
Allan Lyth: Graffiti Name Art
Deisy Leon: Giant Letter Sculpture

6th Grade: 
Alondra Aguinaga: Egyptian Burial Mask
Ryan Smith: Gyotaku Fish Print
Ashley Villanueva: Cityscape Landscape Perspective Print

Alicia Cano: Warm/Cool Self-Portrait

It was a wonderful event!  Held at the beautiful Cheney Mansion in Oak Park, we had artwork throughout the main floor, outside under a large tent, and in the greenhouse.  The sun was shining and the event was attended by about 1500 people!  Student artists were presented with a bag with donations from the WSCAE, Blick Art Materials, Sax Arts, and Crayola.  Not only did I get to work with a great group of art teachers, but I was able to work side by side with MY middle school art teacher, Dianne Washburn, from Pleasantdale District #107!  She is amazing!  For more information about the event, visit:
