Youth can explore their creative side this summer with the Kids Summer Art Program through the Watson Art Centre.

The WAC wasn’t able to offer it the past few years due to a lack of funding, but finally received enough to go ahead.

Cheryl Nicholson, Administrator for the WAC, wanted to focus on arts media and techniques for this program.

“We want to keep it very arts centric and focus on a variety of arts media and techniques. We also try to incorporate some more physical activities, so they’re not sitting at a table doing art the whole time.  They get to get up and move around and we provide healthy snacks midway through each session.”

It runs for six weeks and into six separate sessions starting on July 3 until August 10.

The rates are $75 weekly or $20 daily. Children ages 5 to 8 will attend from 9:30 in the morning until noon.  Youth from ages 9 to 12 will go from 1:00 to 3:30 in the afternoon.

A registration day will be held on Saturday, June 23 from noon to 3:00 in the afternoon.

To sign your children up beforehand, you can call Cheryl at 638-6231.
