Stop by the library through March 21st to see the
District 118 Art A-Fair

Artwork rendered by students in all grades from each school will be on display in honor of Youth Art Month.

Youth Art Month, sponsored by the Council for Art Education, seeks to develop self-esteem, appreciation of the work of others, self-expression, cooperation with others, and critical thinking skills through art.  These skills are vital to the success of our future leaders -- our children.

Approximately 150 pieces of mixed media artwork, including works in pastels, watercolor, oil, clay and metal, will be displayed throughout the library. 

To view some of the artwork on display, click here.

For pictures of the artist's reception on Saturday, February 23, click here.

Don't miss this opportunity to view artwork by the talented students in our community!
