IAEA Student Show Artist
The Illinois Art Education Association is an organization of art teachers that are dedicated to their field of teaching. Each year, the IAEA hosts a student art show of 45 student artists that are selected by a jury from over 800 entries. Hester is lucky enough to have an artist featured in the show for the past two years in a row!
Emily Kwazny, currently in 7th grade, had her monochromatic self-portrait painting from 6th grade selected for the show this year. The artwork was featured at the fall conference in Normal, Illinois where students and their families were invited to attend a reception honoring this achievement. Emily was unable to attend, but Ms. Zill was able to select the award on her behalf.
The student art show will travel the state for the next 9 months visiting a different location each month celebrating the accomplishments of the students.
Here's a few pictures from the show:
