The arts are linked to greater academic achievement, attention-span, emotions, creativity, and self-esteem. Everyone, no matter race, religion, or economic standing, can engage in the arts.

In support of the arts, Palatine Library invites you to experience the 2018-2019 Illinois Art Education Association Student Art Show from Feb. 1-28.

This touring show consists of 45 pieces of award-winning art created from Illinois students in grades K-12. These pieces were selected from more than 634 entries submitted for the annual show. For more about the Illinois Art Education Association, visit https://ilaea.org/about/.

The Palatine Library is especially glad to highlight two Palatine students: Ellie Labowicz and Michael Patano, who have their artwork in the show. Ellie, now a second-grader at Lincoln Elementary School, created her detailed self-portrait with Sharpie and crayons. Michael, formerly at Winston Campus Junior High, created Fading Train, a surrealistic digital piece.

Thank you to Lee Karsbaek, Lincoln Elementary School art teacher, for bringing the art show to Palatine Library.

Visit the second floor of the Main Library in February to view these and all 45 award-winning pieces, including drawings, paintings, collages, mixed media, pottery and photography.
