The Suzette Brumleve Memorial Effingham Public Library is showcasing the art work of Dieterich High School students.

Stacey Zerrusen, art instructor for Dieterich schools explained: “I use the TAB method to teach art. TAB stands for Teaching Artistic Behaviors – this format allows students a wide variety of choice in projects and materials. Because class sizes are small, I am able to individualize my teaching to fit each student and their goals.”

The exhibition invites the public to view 30 works of art. The exhibit shows a wide range of styles and ideas from the students. There are fiber work, barn-quilt style, paper art and gold leaf.

Featured students include:

Sophomores – Riley Baxter, Aaron Davis, Morgan Larson, Khloe Tolch and Kaylee Westendorf

Juniors – Brian Crum, Maggie Britton, Sophia Gillet, Allyson Holste, and Braden Shadle

Seniors – Faith Aherin, Avriti Dogra, Chloe Jansen, Mackenzie Miller, Carly Ohnesorge, Katie Stanley, Madison Vail, Morgan Vail and Brianna Wendte

Dieterich high school students’ artwork will be displayed in the Art Gallery until May 18.
