Climb Aboard: Art Express starts rolling September 19

September 11, 2015

climb-aboardArt Express for children ages 4 to 12 begins Saturday, Sept. 19, and meets for six Saturdays.

Children create art and crafts through a variety of media in a fun and exploratory atmosphere. Every semester, new lessons with a new theme are designed and taught with an expressive and multicultural approach to let children use their imagination to create art projects.

On the final day, parents and children jointly participate in interactive art activities and presentations and take artwork home.

Classes are organized by age and limited in size. Early registration is recommended. All materials are supplied by the NIU Community School of the Arts.

Teachers are students majoring in art and design education, supervised by NIU School of Art and Design faculty.

The fee is $50; the fee is waived for children and grandchildren of NIU employees and students. However, the $15 registration fee is due for each student. This class does not qualify for community school discounts.

For more information, call (815) 753-1450.
