Parkland College > Fine & Applied Arts > Giertz Gallery >High School Seminar



Each year, area high school art instructors are invited to bring their students to Parkland College to try out new materials and techniques. This unique experience exposes many of the participants to materials they may have not known existed, as most schools have limited resources for art supplies.  The Parkland Art Faculty provides instruction and demonstrations to get the students started.

20th Annual High School Art Seminar
October 14, 2016•  9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Close to 200 high school students and their instructors from schools in our district are expected to come and explore artistic techniques during Parkland’s 20th annual High School Art Seminar. The event will be held at the Giertz Gallery and in the art classrooms.

This year's seminar will correspond with the exhibition Parkland College 50th: Art and Design Alumni Exhibition.

As usual, Parkland Art Faculty will lead the students in hands-on workshops, introducing them to new techniques and methodologies in both two and three dimensions. One of the exhibiting artists will also be present to interact with the students and to give a lecture on their life and work. The day will round out with a tour of Parkland’s art facilities, a tour of the art gallery, and refreshments.

Registration through the Giertz Gallery Office is required. Please feel free to contact us at the Giertz Gallery office, 217/351-2485.















Programs at the Giertz Gallery are partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a State agency.
