Arts classes offered for children and teens

Summerland’s Summer Arts Program runs from July 4 to Aug. 23

The Summerland Community Arts Council will offer a variety of summer classes for children at teens at its annual Summer Arts Program.

The program runs from July 4 to Aug. 23 and includes new classes as well as favourites from previous years.

“We’ve got some great classes this year,” said Sonja Waller, administrator at the arts council.

She added that some of the classes for three- to five-year-old children are already full for this year.

Other classes which were sold out last year still have spaces this year.

Clay Play Time, for children seven and older, sold out last year, but still has openings this year.

Fun With a Pocketknife beginner and advanced classes for children nine and older are both expected to fill up for this summer.

New classes this year include Imagination Meets Creativity, So Much Drama, Art Meets Science and Ready… Paint… Brushes… Create…

“We’ve got some highly qualified instructors here,” Waller added.

She urges parents to register their children as soon as possible.

Classes need at least five children or they will be cancelled, she said. In addition, some of the classes are already close to full.

The average cost of a one-week class is $65, although some will be more expensive if specialized materials are required.
