Youth Art Project

The purpose of the Youth Art Project is to provide more access for children to express themselves through the arts and to provide more access for the community to view this art. Click the Gallery button below to see what local youth have created recently!

Artist Workshops

Every June-October, we host free artist workshops that pair local professional artist with youth so children have the opportunity to learn how artists use their medium to express themselves and try it on!  Through business sponsorships and individual donations these local artists get support, too! Contact youthartbaredfeet@gmail.com with any questions.

In 2018, youth learned Macrame from Kelsey Wenberg, drawing/painting in the style of Hundterwasser from Paula Gorski, drew local threatened birds, watched them be cut out of wood, and then painted them with Joe Mauer for a community mural,  discovered the fascinating technique of Corrugated Sculpting with Ray Kaselau, and got to try their hand at building and tack-welding metal sculptures with Dean Glenzer. Their finished work is in the online gallery.

Youth Art Gallery

Children say a lot through their artwork and we at BaredFeet, Co.
think this is truly valuable - for them to express what words cannot
and for the community to view.  So we have a permanent online gallery to see all the neat masterpieces they create! VIEW THE GALLERY HERE

ENTER ARTWORK: Does your kid (0-18) like making art? Our gallery is always looking for art submissions, in any medium. Submit a photo or scanned version of your child's artwork to youthartbaredfeet@gmail.com with the subject line “Youth Art Entry” with their name (just first is ok, or first and last) and age. The art must be done entirely by the child.

THEMES:  Need inspiration? Occasionally we host  topic-led seasonal competitions to get the community talking about these issues and to hear from youth their thoughts on these important topics. Current call for art is on the theme SAFE.  Seasonal winners will be announced publicly and be invited to have their work  physically shown in local art gallery (so keep those originals!).
