Afternoon Tea & Printmaking Classes for Kids

The public is invited to an afternoon tea and gallery talk in celebration of the exhibition “The Nature of Jewelry: Botanical Designs & Symbols,” at Peninsula School of Art, on June 8, 3 – 4:30 pm.

Peninsula School of Art instructor, Sylvia Youell, will discuss her 38-year career as a jewelry artist. Director of Marketing & Exhibitions, Kay McKinley Arneson, will also offer a curator’s perspective on the botanical theme of the exhibition, which features nearly 300 pieces created by studio jewelry artists from throughout the United States, Canada and Ireland.

Peninsula School of Art offers printmaking for children of all ages June 17 – 22.

As the sponsor of the exhibition, Base Camp Coffee Bar will provide refreshments. Admission for art school members is free; a suggested goodwill offering of $5 is encouraged for non-members.

Also, the Peninsula School of Art will offer a week of printmaking and graphic design classes for children, as part of the Summer Studios for Young Artists program, beginning June 17. Students will create their own prints with inspiration that ranges from the bold lines on traditional African fabrics to repeating designs on retro concert posters.

The youngest students will learn to design and make original prints from a variety of media. For older age groups, classes are based on the history of graphic design, poster composition, and advertisements. Teens will have a more in-depth chance to experiment with printmaking materials and equipment by creating linoleum prints worthy of framing.

The Peninsula School of Art is located at 3900 County Road F in Fish Creek. For more information call 920.868.3455 or visit
