The work of 162 K-8 student artists representing Clarendon Hills and Hinsdale middle schools, and Elm, Madison, Monroe, Oak, Prospect, The Lane, and Walker elementary schools is showcased for the entire community. The soundtrack provided by the CHMS and HMS Jazz Ensembles completes the experience.
The students' pieces are fun, interesting, beautiful, thoughtful and so much more. They show the value of a high-quality arts program that encourages creativity, observation, self-expression, focus, discipline, perseverance, collaboration, and risk-taking-- all important life skills.
“Pyramids, cathedrals, and rockets exist not because of geometry, theories of structures or thermodynamics, but because they were first a picture – literally a vision – in the minds of those who built them.” Eugene Ferguson, Historian
