The Sheboygan North High National Art Honor Society was created to offer our students with unique opportunities to engage in the local arts community. As part of a growing partnership with the John Michael Kohler Arts Center, North NAHS students and the South High Art Club were introduced to Lenny who works in the Collections Department. He shared his experience working in the Collections Department and the many tasks that his job entails. After the presentation, they had a sneak peek to where the ‘magic’ happens. The evening concluded with a tour of the recent exhibitions led by Xoe, Education Coordinator.
We will be visiting again in early February to hear curators talk about their role at JMKAC.
In 2015, the Sheboygan North High art department had its first student artwork published in SchoolArts Magazine. We were so thrilled to see our student’s work published in a national art education magazine. Seeing the expressions on our students’ faces when we tell them that their work has been published is priceless. To date, we continue to have our students’ work published.
No matter what you teach, it is important to show the world the quality of student work that is being created inside the classroom. As professionals, it is our responsibility to seek out those opportunities to help our students shine. We will never know what type of impact it can have on a student unless we try. Make it happen.

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.
