Art Shows and Youth Art Month

Happy March Art Parents!
March is nationally recognized as Youth Art Month. In celebration, O.W. Holmes is involved in two art shows. The larger of the two shows is a District wide art show featuring artwork from every school in D97, including the middle schools, at Oak Park River Forest High School. Every classroom at Holmes is represented and has a few pieces of artwork in the show. If your student has work in the show, you will be informed via a letter in the mail very soon. The opening reception is Wednesday March 9th from 6 pm-7:30 pm at OPRF. OPRF art students will be giving tours of the high school art department as well. The artwork will be on display there until 3/23. Please stop by and see the great things that are happening this year in art rooms across the district. The official invitation is printed on the back of this sheet.
The second art show is happening now at the Oak Park public library from until 3/31. This show features the artwork of Holmes students only. Ms. Bernstein’s, Ms. Anderson’s and Ms. Peterson’s and Ms. Rehfield’s entire classes have art work on display there. There are also about 20 students from various classes that have work in the show as well.
Please come check out our hard work!
