Art displayed at state historical building

Four Berg Elementary Art students recently had their artwork on display at the Youth Art Month Show at the Iowa State Historical Society Building and the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines. Their work was among 250 outstanding art works from students from across Iowa selected to recognize and celebrate the manifold contributions that visual arts adds to lives. The four students (from left) are Cole Smith, Julie Behrends, Jeremy Brown, and Izzy Wilson. They are holding certificates they received along with “goody bags” containing art supplies and a clay Youth Art Month medallion. Christy Humpal, longtime Thomas Jefferson Elementary Art Instructor now at Prairie City-Monroe, coordinated the Youth Art Month activities this year for Art Educators of Iowa.
