The NNL exhibits the works of local students

The Chief Information Officer Nodaway gives Nodaway County students the opportunity to display their artwork in its showcases each month.

NNL has been doing this for over 10 years by reaching out to area art teachers to organize a month for their students’ artwork. Two art teachers who have exhibited their students’ work for several years are Carla Perry in Jefferson and Katie Jenkins in Northeast Nodaway.

Peery said, “I love showing my students’ work with the Chief Information Officer Nodaway because it offers the opportunity to show the artistic talents of the pupils.

“Artwork is meant to be seen and every opportunity I receive to help validate the hard work and importance of art in the lives of our students should be taken advantage of. It is also an opportunity for students to be proud of their achievements.

“Having the chance to show our artwork helps the arts curriculum by helping us achieve visual arts presentation pieces.

“I appreciate how displaying student artwork helps our school be recognized as having well-rounded students who are successful in the arts, academics, and athletics,” Peery said. “Our students put a lot of effort into everything they work for.”

“I always take the opportunity to place my students’ artwork in the NNL because it’s an easy way to showcase the things my students create in our art class,” Jenkins said. “I display a lot of artwork in the hallways of our school, but seeing it in public is fun for my students!”

Jenkins explained how this helps her in her art program: “Students like to see their work displayed for the community to see. It gives them a sense of pride, and we talk about how one of the purposes of art is pleasure. Not only their pleasure, but the pleasure of others.

“Because it’s local, my students and their families can easily stop by to see their work,” Jenkins said. “I also love that it’s so easy to drop off and pick up at NNL. My life outside of work is also very busy, so that helps! It’s easy for me and easy for them, which is win-win!”

The schedule of student artwork in the Nodaway News Leader windows for the 2022-23 school year is:

• October: Works by Peery de Jefferson students.

• November: Chandra DeMott’s Maryville Middle School artwork.

• February: Artwork by Northeast Nodaway students in Jenkins.

• March: artwork by North Nodaway students by Stacey Meyer.

• April: works by students of Linda Babcock from West Nodaway.
