Garden of Creativity

This summer, KBGF will be offering an exciting opportunity to middle schoolers from Shoreline Public Schools. Students selected to participate in this free program will work with artists to make site-specific, three-dimensional art at KBG. We hope they will develop their creative abilities and experience the joy of making art while being stimulated by nature and our garden. Ideally, their creations will artfully reflect KBG’s environmental ethic and natural setting.

The artwork will be created and installed in the Garden’s meadow and will stay up through the summer. An “opening” after the second two classes install their work will allow their creations to be celebrated along with those of professional artists and art majors from Seattle Pacific University. 

This program will help to realize Mareen Kruckeberg’s dream, the Arts Committee’s goal, and the Master Plan’s objective of bringing arts into the Garden. It will also be an opportunity to introduce new visitors to KBG, generate additional recognition for the Garden, strengthen our ties to the arts community, and burnish Shoreline’s image as an artist-friendly city. The City of Shoreline, Shoreline School District; and the Shoreline-LFP Arts Council are all key partners in implementing the program.
