Can visual art be taught through radio? The producers of WHA's "Let's Draw" program thought so. Through pioneering on-air lessons, "Let's Draw" brought art education to schoolchildren throughout Wisconsin from 1936 to 1970. This exhibit combines a look at the historic "Let's Draw" program with the work of six contemporary Wisconsin artists who have very diverse approaches to drawing. This exhibition will include archival photographs, transcripts, teachers' guides, drawings, and an interactive station where visitors can listen and follow along with an original "Let's Draw" lesson.
