Drawing Inspiration featuring self-portrait by North High art student


ends April 1, 2018

The John Michael Kohler Arts Center is pleased to present the thirty-second annual Youth Art Month exhibition. This show celebrates the multifaceted talents and artistic achievements of Sheboygan County’s youth while recognizing and applauding the devoted art educators who encourage and guide these young artists. The works in this gallery, created during the 2017–2018 school year by students enrolled in kindergarten through high school, were chosen by art teachers throughout the county. Students were encouraged to consider drawing inspiration from the Arts Center’s Unseen Forces exhibition series through processes such as painting, sketching, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, and photography. Created from a variety of materials, these works range from exuberant to introspective.


Reception for NHS Artist in Residence, Patty Aker, and poetry readings

Best of luck to our Fall 2017 artist in residence, Patty Aker, in pursuit of her creative endeavors. 

We had a memorable time hosting Patty this past semester at Sheboygan North High School.

A big thanks to Ms. Cavanaugh and her poetry students for reading their poems during Patty’s reception. Always a pleasure to experience.

About the exhibition

The Here We Make Our Home exhibit invites teachers and students to explore the visual, poetic, and metaphoric imagery of a birdhouse. Students involved will create a unique piece of art that tells their personal journey story possessed through family heritage or personal experience. Birdhouses were selected as the vehicle for storytelling to represent the idea of home, settlement and migration.
