Smith Studio and Art Gallery understands the importance of a homemade card and the creativity bubbling among our students. The Geneseo art gallery will spark imagination and invention during a children’s Valentine’s Day printmaking and card art class this February.
The thought and generosity behind a homemade gift is something that can never be replaced. As a teacher, when homemade cards and notes cross my desk, I smile at the beautiful pictures and words written on the pages. As time has passed in my own transition to adulthood, the cards being made have become more intricate and creative — something the emphasis in schools on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Matt) learning has empowered students to do.
Set to take place on February 9th, the 1 PM to 3PM course is just one in a line-up of student-based art classes for first grade through sixth grade students. Extending possibilities for students beyond home and classroom walls, the class will consist of many unique printmaking elements and engineering pop-up cards.
The gallery is known for its mission of “visual art enriching life,” and the building representing “a gathering place for the community and visitors.” The owners encourage the public to sign up at the studio or at the Geneseo Community Center.
Smith Studio and Art Gallery is located at 124 South State Street in Geneseo, Illinois. For more information, please visit the gallery’s Facebook page or call 309-945-5428.
