KALAMAZOO--The Western Michigan University Frostic School of Art will again open its doors to young artists in the community this fall, offering Saturday morning art classes to area children.
The SMArt program--short for Saturday Morning Art--will begin Oct. 9. Classes will continue each Saturday through Nov. 20.
SMArt is open to young people ages 7-18 who enjoy art and wish to develop their talents. Through exciting lessons and projects, participants will explore a wide range of contemporary and traditional art media in a safe and encouraging learning community. Seven weeks of art instruction will be topped off with a public exhibition of students' work on Nov. 20 in the Frostic School of Art galleries.
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. Overseen by Dr. Bill Charland, associate director of the school, classes will be taught by advanced-level, pre-service teachers from the Art Education Program. The registration cost is $35 per child.
