Celebrate Earth, Health and Creativity in Fish Creek

Peninsula School of Art teams up with Sustain Door and the YMCA to “Celebrate Earth, Health and Creativity Together” on Saturday, April 18th from 10 am to 2 pm. Family Art Day will focus on creative uses for recycled objects in sculpture and collage, based on the exhibit “Steve Wadzinski: A Legacy” on display in the Guenzel Gallery. The free activities are designed to be fun and educational for children and teens ages 3 ½ to 17 – and their parents. No registration is necessary, and most projects can be completed within an hour or two.

On the same day, the Door Community Auditorium and Friends of Gibraltar will present the Sustainability Fair and the YMCA will present Healthy Kids Day. Parking will be available at each event, but participants are encouraged to use walking trails linking the three events. A map will be available at each location.

While typically parents are asked to participate in the Family Day art projects with their children, on April 18th, Peninsula School of Art will be offering drop-off services from noon to 2 pm, so parents may attend presentations at the Sustainability Fair or YMCA.

“This unique partnership allows each organization to highlight important issues and present family-friendly programs to the Door County community,” says Peninsula School of Art Executive Director, Cathy Hoke-Gonzales. “It is a great opportunity to demonstrate the connection between art and the environment, as well as the importance of art and creativity for a child’s health and well being.”

Family Art Days are supported by contributions and a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board. Donations to the project are always welcome. For more information about this event and other Peninsula School of Art workshops, exhibitions, and community programs, call 920-868-3455 or email [email protected].
