Elmhurst Art Museum Show

Yesterday was the opening reception for the Elmhurst Art Museum's K-8 Art Exhibition.  I was there, checking out the awesome artwork from our elementary and middle school students.  I'm always able to get some good ideas for new projects, plus I get to meet some of your parents and families!  It's always nice to meet families at a fun event like an art show.  Here are some photos from the event:
The exhibit runs through April 11th, so if you have some time before then to stop by the museum, check it out!
