With youth art shows at the Homer Council on the Arts, the Pratt Museum and Paul Banks Elementary School, April First Friday is all about the kids. The annual Jubilee art shows open at HCOA and the Pratt, and once again Paul Banks features its Art Extravaganza. Artist Gail Baker has been doing an artist’s residency at Paul Banks, inspiring students to create space-themed masks in association with the school’s read-a-thon.
Also opening Friday at Christian Community Church is the HCOA-Pier One Theatre youth musical production of “Honk!” The play is based on the Hans Christian Andersen story “The Ugly Duckling.”
A new venue on Pioneer Avenue also opens Friday, with a show by photographer Joluna Love at Alaska Intuitive Arts, an alternative and holistic arts shop.
