ART STUDIO (AGES 7-12) – a FREE drop-in class
EVERY MONDAY, 4:00-5:30, LAST CLASS MEETS ON JUNE 15

(NO CLASS ON SCHOOL VACATION DAYS AND NO CLASS DURING THE SUMMER)
LORI SAMS & ERICA EDWARDS, INSTRUCTORS
ABSOLUTELY FREE!
This free, drop-in offering focuses on developing the skills and experience that will inspire kids to keep exploring art. Each week, we learn about a different artist and create works in their medium or style. We’ve tried everything from Matisse to Frida Kahlo, still life to found-object sculptures. Who knows where we’ll go! No registration is necessary to participate in Art Studio, and all materials are provided—just bring a sense of curiosity with you. It’s a good idea to wear clothes that can get messy.

 Our youth music programs are supported by funding from the Charlotte Martin Foundation, the PGE Foundation and the Rotary Club of Pendleton. It’s all part of S.P.A.R.K., Supporting Performing Arts for Rural Kids, which is helping us bring music to any kid who’s interested, regardless of his or her ability to pay for lessons. Just ask us about tuition scholarships, instrument rental assistance and our instrument lending library!
