Dorothy Simon and Jean McNair students participate in the Young Artist Show

Young Artist Show at the Rockford Art Museum was held this month were several Dorothy Simon and Jean McNair students were honored with their artworks being recognized.

The show features pieces of artwork from students in grades K-8 who attend schools across Winnebago County. The show is on display through May 6.

There were nearly 400 art entries from 60 local schools, and only one award was given per grade level so out of the nine awards given, three of them went to Winnebago students. This has probably never happened before, and it is the first year that any Jean McNair students have received it since Mrs. Mumm has been teaching. Amazing!

Jean McNair participants were 


Fifth grader Clara W.(Picasso Meets Seurat)

Fourth grader Thea M.(Pop Art Printmaking) also received this prestigious award. 

Other entries from McNair were


Third grader Hudson I. (Mystery letter weaving)


Fourth grader Adriahana T.(Russian Architecture)


Fifth grader Sam K.(Abstract Sculpture).

Dorothy Simon student participants were Iris B, Kindergarten (Ladybug) Annalise D., 2nd grade (Tiger), Avery K., 2nd grade (Superhero Landscape), Emmalyn W., 1st grade (Crazy Hair), Bella W., 2nd grade (Circle Weaving)


Annalise D. won the 2nd grade recognition award in the show; this was the top award for all 2nd grade entries. Her tiger piece was also chosen for the front page of the art show brochure. 

Congrats to all of our young artists!
