Throughout the school year Highpoint hosts hands-on printmaking classes for school visitors from the metro area and beyond. Students of all ages visited Highpoint to create their own relief, drypoint, monotype, and screenprints. Highpoint is proud to exhibit their work in our galleries as part of the LOOK/SEE Student Exhibition.
Participating schools include: Augsburg Fairview Academy, Chaska High School,
Hopkins High School, Lake Country School, Lyndale Community School, MERC Alternative High School, Northeast Middle School, Orono High School, Ramsey Middle School, Stonebridge World School, Venture Academy, and YouthCARE.
Highpoint’s education programs are funded, in part, by grants from: The Patrick and Aimee Butler Family Foundation, The Good Family Foundation, Hennepin County Green Partners, HRK Foundation, Martin and Brown Foundation, Minneapolis Public Schools Arts Exploration Fund, The Moore Family Foundation, R.E. Swager Family Foundation, Target, The James R. Thorpe Foundation, Clara Ueland and Walt McCarthy, and The Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board operating support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
