Gateway Technical College will hold its annual Art in Bloom event, featuring the work of seven Floral Design students 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. April 12 in the Arthur F. Mahone Jr. Atrium of the Academic Building on the college’s Kenosha Campus, 3520-30th Ave.

The event is free and open to the public.

Each student is required to select a painting or sculpture and then interpret that artwork through flowers. They will receive their flowers the morning of the event and must be done by 5 p.m.

A three-member panel will judge the pieces and decide a winner. The public, though, is encouraged to vote to decide the People’s Choice award.

Instructor Joanne Leach says students will learn a great deal through the event, from creating their own piece to learning how to incorporate elements of design properly into their work.

“I think this is a fun way for our students to show what they’ve learned,” said Leach. “It helps them to expand their creativity and knowledge. It’s not just floral design – it’s also artwork.”

Food and beverages will be offered at the event.
