This program gives students the opportunity to learn more about art and artists in the area. One part of the program helps coordinate visits by area artists to elementary schools.
The artists may show examples of their art, do demonstrations, discuss their work and may provide hands-on experience for the children. Each artist is paid $100 for the day. The Walworth County Arts Council and the school share this cost. Parent and/or support groups often help with the school’s cost.
Another part of this program offers the opportunity to bring a professional or semi-professional group to the school. In the past this has included Opera for the Young from Madison, Lake Geneva Symphony and the Repertory Theater from Milwaukee. The Walworth County Arts Council and the school share the cost.
Schools interested in either part of this program should contact the Walworth County Arts Council at WCAC446@gmail.com.
