Lighthouse art done by Kewaunee school students will be sold at a special event July 3, to aid in the restoration of the Kewaunee Pierhead Lighthouse.
Hosted by Friends of the Kewaunee Pierhead Lighthouse, the event is scheduled for 3-7 p.m. July 3 at Lakehaven Hall, 96 Ellis St., Kewaunee.
The Friends group was formed to provide financial and physical support for the restoration and ongoing maintenance associated with the lighthouse.
All grade levels at Kewaunee school participated in the art project, according to a Facebook post by the Friends:
The kindergarten class colored lighthouse logo note cards.
First grade cut out the lighthouse logo image and glued it to a 12×18 sheet and colored it. These will get laminated for placemats.
Second grade drew the lighthouse on a 9×12 sheet and used colors and watercolors.
Third grade drew the lighthouse on a 12×15 and used colored pencils, crayons and markers.
Fourth grade hand drew the lighthouse on a 12×15 sheet and used colored pencils and crayons.
Fifth grade hand drew and used colored pencils and markers on a 12×15 sheet.
Sixth grade did a social studies unit on the Great Lakes and created their lighthouse art on a 12×15 sheet or a 9×12 sheet.
Seventh and eighth grade painted with acrylics on an 8×10 canvas.
High School students painted with acrylics on an 11×14 canvas.
The finished art will be on display at various local businesses prior to the Chamber Fourth of July celebration held on July 3.
