Popular Children’s Art Workshop Returns This Fall
TEMPE, Ariz. - One of the Valley’s most popular art education programs for children returns this fall, Classes in the Eleanor A. Robb Children’s Art Workshop 2003 commence on Sept. 13 and run every Saturday through Nov. 15.
Application forms will be available at the Herberger College School of Art from Friday, Aug. 15. The popular classes fill up fast, so early registration is recommended.
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. Last year it was named in honor of Eleanor A. Robb, a longtime supporter of the workshops who made a major donation to the program.
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 only $35 per child. On the final Saturday, the children present an exhibition of their work to the public. Parents can enroll their children 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 2003 should call (480) 965-6981 or pick up a form at the Herberger College School of Art on ASU’s main campus.
