Student art displayed in community settings
If you’ve noticed more art in the Midway recently, it might be because the talented young artists at Hamline Elementary (photo right) have a champion in visual art teacher Katie Laubenstein. In just her second year at Hamline, she is building a meaningful, high-quality art program for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Her enthusiasm for art is contagious, and her ability to teach and inspire students creates opportunities for artistic success and joyful learning.
Thanks to Laubenstein’s efforts, Hamline Elementary student artwork is going public. In January, students showcased their work at Anderson Center on the Hamline University campus (photo left), featuring art inspired by India including beautiful representations of mandalas, henna, dhurrie rugs, elephants, and banyan trees. And neighbors who have been to the Hamline Midway Library recently have been treated to a rotating art exhibit featuring the work of Hamline Elementary students. Keep checking back to see what’s new!
“I Heart Hamline”
All are welcome to stop by Hamline Elementary on Tue., Feb. 14, 9am-1pm, for our “I Heart Hamline” event. We’ll have coffee and cookies and another chance for prospective parents and neighbors to take a tour and chat with Hamline staff and families about why they chose Hamline Elementary and why they stay. Call the school at 651-293-8715 for more information about this, or other programs, or to schedule a tour.
