Cultivating Creativity children's art exhibit in Shelbyville

The traveling exhibition Cultivating Creativity 2013-2014: Consolidated Communications Children’s Art Exhibit continues its year-long tour in Shelbyville at the Shelbyville Public Library, 154 N. Broadway.

The exhibit will be on view January 4 through the 23. Cultivating Creativity showcases some of the outstanding art produced through east-central Illinois school art programs. Presented is art by 47 students, each representing a different school. The art was created during the 2012-2013 school year.

Representing schools in the Shelbyville area are Kayla Lee, Shelbyville High School and Sydnie Helton, Moulton Middle School.

Helton’s cast plaster “Fish Bowl” was made in sixth grade at Moulton Middle School under the direction of Wayde Zerkle. In the tenth grade at Shelbyville High School, Lee created “Through the Light and Dark” with acrylics also under the assistance of Wayde Zerkle.
