PSU students teach high school artists

For one day, the students will become the teachers. That’s the plan for Pittsburg State University’s High School Art Day on Tuesday, April 25.

The Pitt State art students will lead a dozen workshops for 150 students from 13 area high schools, according to S. Portico Bowman, High School Art Day organizing committee chair. The workshops will cover automatism, portraits, worldmaking, character design, matting and framing, watercolor, GIF making, mural painting; bubble prints; bookmaking; wire wrapped gifts and moldmaking/slipcasting.

Bowman said the day is designed to be a “community-based peer-to-peer exchange between college and high school students who share a common interest in careers in the arts.”

In addition to attending the workshops, the high school students will bring their own art for a juried art competition. Michael DeRosa from Coffeyville Community College and Janelle Null from Independence Community College will judge the work and present the awards.

For more information, contact Bowman at sbowman@pittstate.edu or psuhighschoolartday@gmail.com. Or call the Art Department office at 620-235-4302.
