RHINELANDER - A local art museum hopes to inspire children to create and appreciate art.

That's why it opened its doors early today for some young artists.

ArtStart in Rhinelander hosted an artist trading card workshop for 4th through 6th graders.

The kids created as many as 20 cards each.

"I made little reindeer kind of like this one. And I basically made, I stuck to the Christmas theme because it's close to the holidays," says 10-year-old Aurora Barthels.

The children traded the cards with each other once they were finished.

It allowed them to start their own art collections.

ArtStart volunteers wanted to host the workshop to get kids and their families interested in art.

"We're in the Northwoods. We don't have access to a lot of museums, art galleries and things like that. So I just really feel it's important to make children and really anyone be well-rounded and appreciative of any of the arts," says ArtStart board member Lenore Mangles.

Old School Arts and Learning Center co-sponsored the event.
