The Arlington Heights Library Art Show was canceled last May. I had all the banners ready to go already. They were just tucked away in my room all spring and summer long. When I returned to the building I decided to hang them in the hallway outside the art room. I know you can't come and see the art yet, so I took lots of photos and video to share it with you virtually. I even captured the augmented reality effects for the transdigital pieces. Take a look below or go to this link.
See photos of Sonny's monster collage on display at the IAEA conference where he was honored at the artist' reception before it begins its year-long state-wide traveling exhibit. Learn more here. His monster collage was one of only 45 pieces in the entire state to be chose for this special opportunity and the only piece from Dryden. Congratulations!
The Daily Herald wrote a story about the AHML art reception. Read it here.
Only 40 pieces of art art chosen from across the state for the Illinois Art Education year-long traveling art show. Out of the 683 pieces submitted by art teachers across the state our very own Jessica's artwork (currently in 5th grade) was selected. She will be honored at the conference on Saturday in St. Charles.
Below is an image of her painting based on Van Gogh's Bedroom at Arles.
She also entered the bedroom in a digital extension project.
See the whole project and all the videos here.

I’m super excited about this year’s Arlington Heights Memorial Library Art Show festivities because I am also celebrating my 25th year in the district teaching art. I was hired soon after the referendum was passed that put art teachers and art rooms in our buildings. I was fresh out of college back then and have spent my entire adult life teaching D25 kids. For the past 24 years I’ve been based at Dryden.
This year AHML is highlighting Dryden in some special ways:
1. They featured Dryden's art students in their community newsletter for May 2017
2. They are allowing me to Take OVER the AHML Instagram account in May
3. They invited me to bring in the 2nd graders' Collaborative Symmetry Lego Designs
4. They are piloting an animation display on iPads for the month using 3 animated glows
5. They will screen the Fugleflick, Don't Crush My Dreams at the reception. It's a perfect fit since it describes the feelings and dreams of artwork on display (and it's adorable!)
