Katherine Schlageck, senior educator at the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum, created the Beach Museum's Young Curators and Young Artists summer programs in 2011 to teach children of all ages about art and get them involved with the museum. On Oct. 1, the Beach Museum was awarded the 2014 Excellence in Programming Award from the Mountain-Plains Museum Association Education Committee.
"The award helps us to know we're doing an important program," Schlageck said.
The summer program works with kids from six-year-olds to high school students to get kids involved with art and curating exhibits.
"(The program) continues to grow and improve," Schlageck said.

Kansas State Collegian: Lectures help patrons interpret art 11/02/01, 2 Nov 2001 [cached]
Katherine Walker Schlageck , education and public service supervisor for the Mariana Kistler Beach Museum of Art , teaches a program about art and aesthetics.The painting was critiqued for its sense of perspective and quality.Jenny Braniff/Collegian
Every other Thursday , Katherine Walker Schlageck , education and public service supervisor for the museum , conducts Arts Above the Arch lectures and workshops in the UMB Theatre at the museum.
The idea of this is for anyone to learn more about art , Schlageck said.
Schlageck talked to the audience about how to present art to children in a way they will understand and appreciate.Schlageck told the audience their interaction with children is very important.
For this to work , you all have to pretend you are kids , Schlageck said.
Schlageck went through two different paintings during her presentation.She asked the audience a series of descriptive questions for each painting and let them respond.
The longer you look , the more things you'll see in this , Schlageck said.
Schlageck said it is a good idea to tell kids to write down everything they saw in the painting because it would help them understand the artwork.
The museum uses the Edmund Burke Feldman's Aesthetic Criticism method of looking at art.This is the same method used by the Manhattan public schools.
Schlageck said it was important to use the same method because children will familiarize themselves with the method.Children also will organize questions and information logically by providing a similar framework for looking at art.
After Schlageck's lecture , the audience divided into five groups and moved into the Donna Lindsey Vanier Gallery.
In the gallery , Schlageck explained the five ways to approach looking at artwork -- aesthetic , narrative , logical/quantitative , foundational and experiential quests.
She said these different quests were important because each child will approach art in a different way.
Schlageck said people should make the art relate to themselves by what she showed them in her interactive lecture.
I have never been exposed to art until recently.
