One of the most important things we can do for our children is to expose them to art in their everyday life as well as in school. Here are the top ten things children learn from art:
•How to Receive Constructive Criticism
Because we believe so strongly in these benefits, Mena Art Gallery is beginning a series of monthly classes that will be taught by a series of Mena artists.
These Young Artist’s Classes are held the 3rd Saturday of the month from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. This is for children ages 13 to 17. The cost is $2 per child to help with the cost of supplies.
The first two classes scheduled are:
March 21, 2015 – Susan Sebren – Paper Mache
April 18, 2015 – Gilda Meyers – Shaving Cream Cards
Please call or stop by the gallery at 607 Mena Street to schedule your child so we know how many will be attending. Mena Art Gallery’s phone number is 479-394-3880. If we are not here just leave a message and we will get your child signed up. Gallery hours are 11 am to 2 pm Tuesdays and 10 am to 3 pm Wednesdays through Saturdays.
