Kewaunee Academy Moves to New Location

After six years of operating The Kewaunee Academy of Fine Art in Kewaunee, Norma Bell is moving the school to a new facility in Algoma. The move will be completed in time for the commencement of the 2010-2011 school year, which begins August 3.

Previous to this move, the academy had been located in an old dairy barn in Kewaunee.

“We have all cherished and enjoyed our residence at the ‘Big Barn,’” said Bell. “However, it is time to open the second chapter of the Kewaunee Academy of Fine Art, and this move will facilitate this new era.”

The new location will be at 316-318 Steele Street, Algoma, in a vintage 1905 brick building. The space will provide 3,000 square feet, 13-foot tall ceilings, hardwood floors, and many other vintage features.

“The authentic early 20th century character inherent in the architecture of this building will infuse our curriculum and the educational experience,” said Craig Blietz, Artistic Director of the Academy

With Dick Bell’s departure, Norma Bell has become the sole proprietor and administrator of the academy. Craig Blietz will remain the Artistic Director. The school will retain the name Kewaunee Academy of Fine Art.

The academy will host a Grand Opening Celebration. Details will be available soon. For more information call 920.388.4391 or 925.963.7023 or visit
