TWO Dryden Artists have their art featured on the Youth Art Month Poster for the state of Illinois. These posters are distributed to every school building and legislator in the state to celebrate Art Education. We are so proud of our two winners! They were recognized at the school board meeting on March 14th.

A group of 5 students worked on a Fugleflick movie over a period of 5 months that uses art as a metaphor for embracing diversity, Different is Good. This movie was debuted to a large audience as the Cultural Arts Fair and introduced by the filmmakers themselves. Congrats to Isabelle, Marion, Ciara, Ryan, and Brianna (not shown). View the movie and take the quiz here on my previous blog post.
The District's Cultural Arts Fair was held on March 7th. I was not able to attend because I was at the NAEA conference in Texas, but Mrs. Beihoffer (thank you!) volunteered to hang our art banners and photograph the Dryden Artists who stopped by. Congratulations to those with art selected for this exhibit. The beautiful work is worth celebrating! See more photos below.
Four Dryden Artists had artwork chosen for permanent display at the new St. Alexius Children's and Women's Hospital in Hoffman Estates. The organizers wanted local student art and selected Dryden pieces from last year's Artsonia Gallery. The families brought the original pieces in to be scanned and judged by a committee. The ones selected were blown enlarge and professionally displayed in the hallways and/or in the patient's rooms. How wonderful that our wish for the world project inspired by Robert Indiana's LOVE image will be spreading a message of kindness to the future patients of this hospital. Jack's art was a watercolor of fall leaves. See more images from the VIP artist's reception at the hospital on Friday, March 15th below.
It's that time of year again, Dryden students, to enter your design for the
Cultural Arts Fair Program Cover Design contest!
This year's theme is Universal Moments. Be creative, use good craftsmanship, and READ ALL THE DIRECTIONS so you are not disqualified. All entries are due to Mrs. Fuglestad (me) by February 7th. I'll upload all qualified entries to a gallery on Artsonia for all to view and enjoy! Good luck:)

The Cultural Art Fair will host a district wide art show to showcase our talented students in K-8th grades. I will be making my selections and notifying students with certificates approximately two weeks before the show. Keep trying your best and good things happen:) Take a look at my post from last year's art show at the C. A. F. and watch the video I made from the event above.
Congratulations to Dryden Artists. Your made us proud!
If you didn't get a chance to come to the Cultural Arts Fair on Wednesday, I have the display including the finalist for the program cover design in the hallway across from our art history tile wall. Please stop by during conferences and take a peek:)
