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: Elk River High School, Folwell Performing Arts Magnet, Henry Sibley High School, Hiawatha College Prep, Hopkins High School, Jefferson Community School, Lake Harriet Community School, Lyndale Community School, North Park Elementary, Orono High School, Roosevelt High School, Southwest Christian High School and Waseca High School.
Highpoint’s education programs are funded, in part, by grants from: Harlan Boss Foundation for the Arts, The Patrick and Aimee Butler Family Foundation, The Good Family Foundation, HRK Foundation, Martin and Brown Foundation, McKnight Foundation, Mersky Family Foundation, Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, 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.
