The Pella Community Services Art Center still has openings for its spring semester after-school programs on Mondays and Wednesdays.
The classes meet once a week, either on Monday or Wednesday, on alternating weeks. The Monday groups meet from 3:30 to 6 p.m. and the Wednesday groups meet from 2 to 5 p.m. when school is dismissed early or from 3:30 to 6 p.m. when the schools are open regular hours.
According to the Art Center:
“The Art Center has been offering an interdisciplinary visual arts program for students in Kindergarten-12th grade at the Community Center since 1990.
“The Art Center encourages students to explore their individual creative needs by defining their own projects. On any given day at the Art Center, you might see a 5th grader working on a quilt, a 3rd grader finishing a wood project, while other students are working on a painting, glazing a pot they threw on one of our potter’s wheels or relaxing in our easy chair and reading a book. Art Center students of all ages can be seen collaging, weaving, sculpting, paper making, or painting.
“At the Art Center we help our students develop an appreciation for the value of learning. The choices at the Art Center are extensive and our teachers are prepared to provide the inspiration and information necessary for students to reach their individual goals.”
As of Tuesday morning, there were openings in both Monday groups, as well as four openings in Wednesday Group 1 (meets first and third weeks of the month, except in March).
Each group is limited to 16 students to ensure proper social distancing in accordance with public health recommendations. One student may only register for one group. The program costs $50 per resident and $60 per non-resident.
