Art shows are a great opportunity for students to showcase their creativity! At Martino Jr. High we participate in multiple art shows each year, in addition to contest submissions as they arise.
Fine Arts Night
Symphonic Orchestra and Martino Artists perform and display their work, including the new murals by the Advanced Art Class. Students from the Advanced Fashion & Fabric class will be showcasing their creations during the show as well.
Saturday, March 18th from 10am-3pm will be filled with art, music, dance, theater and more! The annual event is held at Lincoln-Way East high school and showcases talent from the entire Lincoln-Way Community. We are able to display about 30 students' work each year and the NLSD art teachers offer a hands-on Printmaking workshop!
IAEA Student Show (Juried show)
This is an annual show in which hundreds of artwork is submitted and very few are able to be chosen. It is a great honor and students who have their work accepted are invited to an special reception in November at the Illinois Art Education Association Conference. Their piece will travel for one year to various locations across the entire state of Illinois.
