Saturday morning art classes for area youngsters
Jan. 26, 2010
KALAMAZOO--The Western Michigan University Frostic School of Art is again opening its doors to young artists in the community beginning Feb. 6, offering Saturday morning art classes to area children.
The SMArt program--for Saturday Morning Art--was unveiled last October by the WMU Art Education Program. Classes will continue each Saturday through March 27. Due to spring break, there will be no class on March 6.
SMArt is open to young people ages 7-18 who enjoy art and wish to develop their talents.
"Classes will cover a wide range of mediums and techniques," says Dr. William Charland, associate director of the Frostic School of Art. "Our underlying goal is to help children grow and learn through art. As last semester's kids and parents can tell you, it's always exciting, and the final exhibition, held in the Frostic School of Art galleries, is a tremendous source of pride for everyone involved."
Classes will meet from 9 to 11 a.m. each Saturday in the Frostic School of Art studios in south Kohrman Hall on the University's Main Campus and will be taught by advanced-level, pre-service teachers from the Art Education Program. The registration cost is $35 per child.
