Official registration for the 2017 “Summer Art Experience” for children is now open. Applications may be picked up at the main and branch libraries. This will be the sixth year for this popular program. Designed for children ages 5-13, participants register for a total of three free art classes over a six-week period, utilizing various art techniques taught by local art instructors. Class dates will be on Monday afternoons from June 5-July 17, or Tuesday afternoons from June 6-July 18. There will be no classes the week of July 4. After successful completion of classes, children will receive art supplies to take home.
All slots for the ages 5-8 classes have been filled. You may still turn in an application to be considered as an alternate in case of cancellations. There are still a few slots open for children ages 9-13.
Funding this year is provided with the generosity of The Alliance Kiwanis Club, Alliance Quota Club, Alliance Rotary Club, and Hatherill Insurance, Inc.
