ELMHURST – Sandburg Middle School seventh-grader Jackson Rosenberg’s artwork was recently selected for inclusion in the Illinois Art Education Association (IAEA) Student Art Show.
Art teachers throughout the state of Illinois submitted over 725 artwork entries for selection, and only 40 pieces were ultimately chosen to be a part of the show. Jackson's observational colored pencil drawing of an aluminum can in various stages of being crushed was one of only two pieces of art created by seventh grade students in the collection. The show will be on display at the IAEA conference this fall, and at locations throughout the state, according to a District 205 news release.
Jackson's work will be professionally matted and framed for the duration of the show. There will also be a reception honoring the winners, their parents, teachers and administrators on Nov. 8 at the IAEA fall conference in Lisle.
