Fall Classes At CreArtive


Children and their parents were invited to The Art Guild at Elderfields Preserve for CreARTive, a fun afternoon of creative art-making, on Saturday, Aug. 22. Children worked with clay, made simple prints, tie-dyed T-shirts, sketched and created collages as parents mingled, toured thCreARTive090915Ce building and spoke to Art Guild staff and volunteers about upcoming fall classes for children.
“It was a terrific afternoon and a fun way to reintroduce ourselves to parents and children. It was a great way to show off our dedicated teachers, staff and volunteers,” said Susan Herbst, associate executive director. “I think we made some new friends and hope that we’ll see them again soon.”
The following classes for children will be offered in the fall:
• Art Explorations (ages 5 to 7), six Saturdays (Sept. 26, Oct. 3, 10, 17, 24, 31) from 12:30 to 1:45 p.m.
