Prism Portraits celebrates North Star Elementary student artwork and aims to connect students to the local art culture of Salt Lake City. The project features artwork created during a 4-week long project in which students learned about the elements of art and created kaleidoscopes and self-portraits.
Finch Lane Gallery will feature student paintings, self-portraits, and large decorated kaleidoscopes. In addition, there will be an activity space for visitors to make their own kaleidoscopes, fold and decorate prisms, and enjoy light refreshments on an outdoor patio.
