The Katonah Museum of Art’s education staff and installation crew introduced students to the concepts and skills involved in curating and hanging a professional exhibition. 

A team of KMA volunteers works behind the scenes, providing support to the students during the multi-day installation.

Over 350 students from 38 schools in Westchester, Putnam and Fairfield counties took part in this year’s exhibition.

YOUNG ARTISTS 2020 Graphic Design Workshop

Students from each participating high school were selected by their teachers to participate in a full-day workshop led by graphic design educators from the Bedford Central Schools and analyzed the elements of successful design.

Greeley students Kristen Kibler, Steven Kim and Lucille Ward were introduced to contemporary examples of graphic art preparation for their own work. They then created their own designs for the Young Artist 2020 announcement.

From these works, one piece was selected by the workshop participants and Katonah Museum Board, staff and volunteers based on originality of concept, execution of the idea and how well it represents the Young Artists exhibition.
