Ancient Art Afterschool Program returns in September

   Are you looking for a creative activity for your upper elementary age child to kick off the new school year?  If so, you may be interested in the Ancient Art Afterschool Program on Mondays September 9, 16, 23 & 30 from 4:30-5:30 pm.  This program was offered in the spring and is returning with the same educational and fun art projects.

This program is for children 10 years and up.  The children will learn about the art of several ancient cultures and they will make art projects such as cave paintings, clay pots, dot painting, and mosaics.   This is a "hands-on" program, so children will need to have a smock or old shirt to protect their clothing.
