Youth Create Messages for the Masses at Peninsula School of Art

Peninsula School of Art hosted more than 230 area children and teens as part of its Kids Create (formerly We Love Art) program this winter, and their work will be on display in the Guenzel Gallery through April 15 in the Kids Create: A Message to the Masses exhibit.

During free field trips to the art school, students used a variety of printmaking techniques to highlight their own lives and concerns, inspired by a variety of ancient and contemporary printmakers. Participants included Gibraltar third-graders and high school art students, Peninsula Preschoolers, St. Peter’s Lutheran first- through eighth-graders, and Washington Island high schoolers. 

Students from St. Peter’s Lutheran School watch a demonstration by Crystal Chesnik, Peninsula School of Art’s director of exhibitions and public programs. Submitted.

Families can explore printmaking techniques during Peninsula School of Art’s free Family Art Days, including the one set for March 18, 9 am – 12 pm. Community members can view the students’ work and learn more about the printmaking techniques by visiting the Guenzel Gallery or attending the closing celebration April 15, 9 am – 12 pm. Refreshments will be served.
