Peninsula School of Art Youth Workshops Begin June 21

The Summer Studios for Young Artists program at the Peninsula School of Art in Fish Creek will begin Monday, June 21, with age-appropriate workshops for students ages 3 to 17.

This year, each week focuses on a single medium. Monday through Thursday offers instruction in painting, ceramics, sculpture, printmaking, or cartooning and animation. The only exception is a week traditionally dedicated to the creation of the School’s Fourth of July Baileys Harbor parade entry.

New for 2010 is the Friday morning “Relate and Create” program. This half-day workshop facilitates multi-generational, collaborative art activities.

Maggie Banks of Sturgeon Bay will be the 2010 Studio for Young Artists intern, providing assistance to youth arts educators. Banks is a printmaker and a 2008 graduate of the Milwaukee School of Art and Design.

The School and Guenzel Gallery, located at 3900 County Hwy F, Fish Creek, is open Monday through Saturday, 9 am – 5 pm. For more information visit
