, for eight weeks, the MCC is inviting 30 students aged 11 to 17 to participate in a collective fine arts and music program. (Please Note: Class will not be held on Thursday. March 15th due to a previously scheduled overlapping event. Classes will resume on Thursday, March22nd.)
Local artists and will be leading workshops in line drawing, painting, and silk painting, while Cathryn Guillette will work musically with students in improvisation and rhythm. The goal of the program is to provide positive activity and a creative outlet for youth in our area, particularly as funding for a broader education is disappearing from our public schools.
This is truly a rare and affordable opportunity for both budding artists and musicians, or any other kid who wants to make a commitment for the duration of the class. Parents are asked to donate only five dollars per class, and also to volunteer to provide a snack for the group on just one of the eight sessions. No one will be turned away for lack of money. All funds generated will go back into supporting the program.
The courses will be given at the Mateel Community Center. Each artist will take up to ten pupils at a time for about 45 minutes, and then the students will move on to the next teacher, thus experiencing three classes every Thursday. Older students willing to assist the instructors, in addition to enjoying their own projects, can earn community service hours. The resulting art work and music generated will be showcased at the annual “Artists of the Emerald Coast” show held at the MCC on Saturday, April 28th, 2012.
