Popular Children's Art Workshop Returns this Fall


September 07, 2004

TEMPE, Ariz. – One of the Valley's most popular art education programs for children returns this fall when theEleanor A. Robb Children's Art Workshop 2004 commences on Sept. 11, continuing every Saturday through Nov. 13.

The workshop series presented by ASU's Katherine K. Herberger College of Fine Arts has for years given children a chance to discover their creative side. The 10-week workshop series, taught by art education students from the Herberger College's School of Art, attracts between 300 and 500 children every fall. Class teachers are art education majors working toward their certification to teach art.

Classes are held every Saturday for 10 weeks and cater to two age groups. Five to nine-year-olds participate in Creative Expressions classes, which enable them to work in many art media. Ten to 15-year-olds choose from specialties that include photography, drawing, painting, ceramics, printmaking, crafts and sculpture.

Participation in the 10-week program costs $40 per child. On the final Saturday, the children present an exhibition of their work to the public. Children can participate in either a 9-10:30 a.m. class or an 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. class.

Parents wishing to enroll their children in the Eleanor A. Robb Children's Art Workshop 2004 should call (480) 965-6981 or pick up a form at the Herberger College School of Art on ASU's main campus. Demand for the program is high, so early registration is recommended.

The School of Art is part of The Katherine K. Herberger College of Fine Arts at Arizona State University. The college educates more than 2,500 students annually and encompasses the School of Art, the School of Music, the Department of Theatre and the Department of Dance, as well as the research-based Institute for Studies in the Arts and the ASU Art Museum.
