The Chicago Tribune

Monart Drawing Studio is featured in this recent article online and in the print publication of the Chicago Tribune and other neighborhood papers this April.  A reporter was on the scene at the reception of our Annual Student Art Exhibit. She took pictures and interviewed several students and their families. We are so happy for the students who were highlighted. Thank you to the editor of the Arlington Heights Post,  John Puterbaugh for his enthusiasm and support.
