UWS Exhibition highlights local youth talents… and their teachers!
Art teachers do more than cultivate deeper understandings of line, shape, color, and form – they foster flexible thinking, teamwork, and an ability to handle failure. Art teachers encourage elastic thinking and inclusive behavior and share an appreciation for history and story telling.
This winter the Univeristy of Wisconsin, Superior is highlighting both sides of the creative classroom with an exhibition at the Kruk gallery. The show features artwork from grades k-12 in Superior alongside that of the teachers who foster creativity in these students.
Tim Nelson is a teacher in Superior and speaks to the importance of exhibitions like this one: “It is essential for students to showcase their work in the community; it not only prepares students for the real world but it also shows them their work can make an impact on others.”
The exhibition is free and open to the public.
