Kewaunee County Celebrates Youth Art Month

The National Art Education Association designates March as Youth Art Month, and Algoma is joining in to celebrate young creators in the community. 

The month of programming will start with a First Friday event in downtown Algoma. Held on March 1, 5-8 pm, the event will include a juried exhibit highlighting student talent from all three county high schools. 

Participating venues include Yonder, Yardstick, Clay on Steele, Ladybug Glass, Fishline Studios, Steele Street Trading Company, Robert Ray Gallery and the Pottery Co-op. Maps are available at each location.

The fun will continue with an open mic on March 16, 6:30-8:30 pm, for artists ages 11 to 18. Doors open at 6 pm for signup. The event will take place at Robert Ray Gallery, 520 Parkway St. in Algoma.

Free and paid art workshops, including watercolor, clay-slab, photography and yoga workshops, will run throughout the month. For a full list of workshops and registration information, visit
