Gathering: 9:30 am – Minnesota State College
Time: 10:00 am – 12:00 pm – Field Trip to Red Wing ArtReach
Return: 12:30 pm – Return to College

Leader: Michelle Heiberger

The Young Collectors program will begin by gathering at Minnesota State College Southeast. This will be their opportunity to get connected with their Red Wing friends before heading out on their field trip.

The RWCS has partnered with Red Wing ArtReach to create a new opportunity for our Young Collectors. These collectors will travel to the ArtReach studio in Downtown Red Wing to learn about clay building, see their new kiln, and paint their own Red Wing. While there they will be working on a creative way to share with the Kids View participants how making clay into pottery works.

Volunteers are Needed!

Kids View/Young Collectors Volunteer Sign up –There are opportunities available on both Thursday and Friday to assist with Kids View and Young Collector programs.

Come have Fun with the youth of our organization!

About Young Collectors


This program is for collectors between the ages of 13-20 that might be interested in history, art, and collecting. This program expands on the education and activities of Kids View and offers new advanced education and retention opportunities for young RWCS members who have graduated from Kids View.

The Young Collectors Cub was started at the 2011 Convention by Wendy Callicoat, after her 10 years of partnering with Sue Jones Tagliapietra to develop and launch Kids View. This program consists of educational seminars, field trips, networking, and hands-on experiences.
