Fireweed celebrates artist residency

Debbie Piper was the most recent Artist-in-Schools resident at Little Fireweed.

On Friday, March 29, the school celebrated with a gallery art walk for friends and family to see the work the students did during the ceramics residency.

The Artists in School program is offered through the state and is coordinated locally by Bunnell Street Arts Center. Artists participate in one- to three-week residencies in schools around the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District.

The program also gets support from the Alaska State Council on the Arts, Rasmuson Foundation, Kenai Fine Arts Center, Alaska USA, Ulmer’s Drug and Hardware, and Bunnell supporters.
