Monday’s Child • Port Angeles Fine Arts Center Summer Classes
ArtPaths, PAFAC’s school year education program, will offer a summer series of art classes for young artists (grades 1 – 6). The program will present a different project offering every Monday afternoon in July & August.
Classes will explore the elements of art with imaginative exercises. Weather permitting, these will be taught outdoors in the central meadow of Webster Woods Art Park. In case of rain the classes will move into the Webster House gallery.
Sessions are two hours (1pm – 3 pm) and will be taught by guest artists, arts educators and PAFAC staff.
10 participants are needed to cover expenses for each session, so pre-registration is important. The limit for each session is 25.
Early registration cost is $10 per session (by the Friday preceding the session).
Day of the session registration is $12 (provided space is available).
