Staff Report

The Mispillion Art League is pleased to announce its summer schedule for children. “Calling Young Artists” weekly drop-In classes will be held for six-weeks beginning Tuesday, July 5, and Wednesday, July 6, in the Art Gallery located at 5 N. Walnut Street in downtown Milford.

Children from the ages of 6 through 12 are eligible to attend. Calling Young Artists is a series of fine arts classes that allow children to experience a different art genre’ each week. Whether a child wishes to attend one class, two, or all six is up to them! Going on vacation during this time period? No problem as each class offers an art experience that’s independent of the others.

Classes for children ages 6 and 7 are being offered on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10:00-11:00am, children ages 8 and 9 may come from 11:30am-12:30pm on Tuesday or Wednesday, and ages 10-12 will have class from 1:00pm-2:30pm on Tuesdays only. (A Wednesday class for the older children may be added if registrations are high.) Class fees range from $12 – $15 per week or from $60 – $75 for all six weeks when payment is made in advance of the first class. Full or partial scholarships are available for the classes.

Professional artists and educators, Vicki Hudson and Cathy Walls, will be teaching the young artists this summer. These talented instructors have taught for MAL for the past two years. Mrs. Hudson is a teacher of the multiple intelligences art classes in the Milford Schools and Mrs. Walls is a professional artist who specializes in pastels and watercolors.

Both of these teachers are hard at work preparing exciting, hands-on art experiences for the children who will attend. Registration forms are available at the Gallery. For questions or further information, please contact Judy Struck at 424-8361 or by email to: judystruck@comcast.net.
