ST. CHARLES – Artwork from students in St. Charles School District 303 will be on display throughout July at the St. Charles Public Library, 1 S. Sixth Ave., St. Charles.
The library will host “Imagination,” the district’s student art show, according to a news release. The library has hosted the event for more than 25 years. The show includes artwork created by students in elementary school through high school.
An open house, showcasing the student artists, will take place from 2 to 3 p.m. July 13 in the library’s Huntley Meeting Room.
Elementary artwork featured in the show is a reflection of a new teaching approach called TAB (teaching for artistic behavior), the release stated.
“Artwork from grades K-12 is student centered and reflects 21st century learning skills,” said Rebecca Hubbs, an art teacher at Davis Primary and Richmond Intermediate schools. “Important components of arts education in the classroom allow for students to develop critical thinking skills, creativity and collaboration and communication skills.”
The work includes drawings, paintings, weavings, photographs, sculptures and digital media. The art will be displayed in the Huntley Meeting Room, the Net.Gallery and both lobby display cases.
Funding for the matting and framing of the K-8 artwork is sponsored by the elementary and middle school parent teacher organizations.
