JMKAC to kick off Youth Art Month celebration

Students, teachers, family, and friends are invited to honor Sheboygan County’s young artists at the Youth Art Month Celebration, March 4, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan.

This festive event highlights the 32nd annual Youth Art Month exhibition featuring hundreds of works created by area schoolchildren, on view through April 1. This show highlights the multifaceted talents and artistic achievements of area schoolchildren while recognizing and applauding the devoted art educators who encourage and guide them.

The works in the gallery were all created during the 2017–2018 school year by students enrolled in kindergarten through high school and were chosen by the art teachers. Students were encouraged to consider drawing inspiration from the Arts Center’s exhibitions through processes such as painting, sketching, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, and photography. Created from a variety of materials, these works range from exuberant to introspective.

The celebration event includes live music performed by student ensembles, art-making activities, face painting and refreshments. Admission to the Youth Art Month Celebration is free; a nominal fee is charged for some activities.

For more information, call 920-458-6144. The John Michael Kohler Arts Center is located at 608 New York Ave. in downtown Sheboygan. Free parking is available in the Arts Center lot.
