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.
We have some wonderful news for three of our Dryden Artists this March (Which happens to be Youth Art Month). Jack B., currently in 4th grade, had his art, "KIND" selected for permanent display at the new St. Alexius Women and Children's Hospital in Hoffman Estates. He has been invited to VIP reception along with other student artists who have also had pieces chosen to add cheer to the halls of this institution.
Ben G., currently a 4th grader, had his piece, "ART SMART" chosen for the Illinois Youth Art Month poster that will be distributed to every school and congressional leader in the state to help celebrate art education in our schools during the month of March.
Robert J., currently a 3rd grader, had his piece, "Different is Good" chosen for the Illinois Youth Art Month poster also! How amazing to have both artists chosen in one year from the hundreds that were submitted across the state of Illinois.
