On 11-11-11 I attended the IAEA conference where I presented, celebrated my student's artwork selected for the IAEA student show, networked with art teachers, learned about some inspiring art collaborations, hung out with friends while making new ones, and gave my first speech while accepting the IAEA Art Teacher of the Year award. It was such an amazing weekend and personally exciting experience. I made a photo collage of my highlights below. View it larger here.
Congratulations to Kristelle. Her value drawing self portrait was one of only 40 pieces chosen from all of Illinois for this year long traveling exhibit. She was honored on Nov. 12th in Bloomington-Normal at the Illinois Art Educators annual conference. Her beautiful portrait was a big hit with everyone. View all the chosen pieces here on the IAEA gallery on Artsonia.
View Kristelle at the artist's award presentation below. We're so proud of you!

This year's Youth Art Month Poster contest for the state of Illinois is themed "Wilderness".
I am only allowed to submit 6 entries for this contest. If one of our Dryden entries is selected it will be apart of a YAM poster that will be sent to EVERY school and Congress person in Illinois to help celebrate Youth Art Month in March 2012. Wish our talented artists luck!

You never win unless you try and Dryden artists really try so I can't help but want to see them win.
Only 40 pieces from across the state are selected from students in K-12 in this traveling year long exhibit. One Dryden Artist was chosen for this show this year. Congratulations to Kristelle (currently a 6th graders at South) for her value drawing self-portrait from 5th grade.
See all the artwork chosen for this show here.
Kristelle has been invited to the IAEA state conference on Nov. 12th in Bloomington-Normal to receive her award along with the other students chosen for this exhibit. What an honor!
