Dryden Elementary
Arlington Heights, Illinois
Thanks for making our Dryden online digital art gallery a place where students can watch their abilities grow as they grow in self-esteem. Your participation makes all the difference from joining fan clubs, sending comments, and purchasing cool products that feature their artwork to those discussions at home about the wonderful things that they're exploring in art class. Our kids are loving it! Teach your children how to write a compliment to a fellow artist/classmate and explore artwork from all over the world. Help your student reflect on their artwork by encouraging them to write an artist statement for their published art.
Visit our school website and the Fugleblog to stay up to date with all the wonderful things happening in Dryden's Art Program!

Let's make it our goal to get every student in the Hall of Fame this year!
Thanks again for your support.
