Students smiled with pride as they showcased their artistic talents to their parents and siblings Thursday during the seventh annual "arteffects" art show at Cook Park Public Library.

Libertyville School District 70 students exhibited artwork as part of National Youth Art Month during March.

The show features about 150 pieces of two-dimensional artwork by students in kindergarten through eighth grade from all five grade schools and will be on display through April 2 at the downtown Libertyville library, explained art teacher Cindi Sartain.

In addition to the art, patrons also enjoyed performances by the Highland Show Choir and the Strolling Strings during the open house.

"It has become bigger and bigger every year, and the kids love it. It is fun to have their picture looking like it's in a gallery, hanging on the wall with their name on it," said art teacher Alicia Sather. "It is just a way to showcase our artwork that they've worked so hard on all year long."

Student artwork from District 70 will also be on display in businesses throughout town, as well as at the David Adler Music & Arts Center and Advocate Condell Medical Center.
