Early registration urged for summer arts courses

Alana Parker, coordinator of the Summer Arts Program at the Summerland Community Arts Council, said parents should register their children early for the various courses. If the registration numbers are too low, courses may be cancelled.

When it comes to arts programs, those who hesitate may find themselves sorely disappointed.

Alana Parker, coordinator of the Summer Arts Program at the Summerland Community Arts Council, said parents should register their children early for the various courses. If the registration numbers are too low, courses may be cancelled.

“Register as soon as you can,” she said.

Two music courses, both taught by Will Schlackl, will be offered July 25 to 29 if there are enough participants.

The Magic of Music is for children between the ages of three and five, while And The Beat Goes On is for children from seven to 11.

Dance classes are scheduled for Aug. 2 to 5, again depending on the registration numbers. Darian Reger is scheduled  to teach Do You Want To Dance, for children between six and eight years of age, and Gotta Dance, for those between nine and 11.

She said Rick Wiebe’s course, Fun With A Pocket Knife, does not yet have many participants registered. The course, which runs Aug. 15 to 19, has been a popular course in past years.

New for this year is Jewelry Making, taught by Karen Griggs.

The course is for participants between eight and 12 years of age, although participants as old as 14 will also be accepted.

Parker urges early registration. Those interested in the courses can stop in at the Summerland Community Arts Centre on Main Street, phone 250-494-4494 or e-mail slandarts@telus.net.

A drop box is available for those who want to drop off the registration forms and payment at the door after hours.
