Gig Harbor elementary students recently put on their artist berets for a project based on the famous birch tree paintings by Austrian artist Gustav Klimt.
More than 3,000 students from 7 local schools participated in the project organized by the Peninsula Hands On Art.
Founded in 2003, the Peninsula Hands On Art provides 4 art projects every year by trained volunteer docents.
Through donations and volunteer efforts, the program provides art history classes and projects to the local students.
