Hey kids, are you looking for a fun way to spend the summer while learning about art? The Lassen County Arts Council is presenting a series of workshops between now and July 27th focused on letting you dabble in all sorts of different artistic mediums.
The Summer Art Program is held Mondays and Wednesdays; workshops are held for ages 6 to 12 from 10:00a.m. to 12:00 and for ages 13 through 18 workshops are scheduled from 1:00 to 3:00p.m.
Classes are limited to 16 children per workshop so you will want to sign-up soon. Each workshop is $5 per child. Due to limited capacity the Arts Council is strongly encouraging parents to prepay for workshops to guarantee their child’s seat.
Stop by the Gallery Monday through Friday, 12:00 to 4:00p.m. to prepay and sign-up your child for one or all of the workshops. You can download the registration form here and either walk-in or mail-in your completed form and payment.
