ECU OFFERING 'ALL ABOUT ART' FOR AREA YOUNGSTERS

Students in East Central University's Art for Secondary Teachers class and the Ada Arts and Heritage Center will present a series of free art classes for elementary students each Wednesday in April.

The classes, titled All About Art, will be held from 4 to 4:50 p.m. each Wednesday from April 2 through April 30 at the Ada Arts and Heritage Center. They are designed for children between the ages of 5 and 12 as part of project SOAP (Student Outreach Art Project).

The classes explore a wide variety of art by exploring media. Projects will include paper craft, printmaking, tie-dying and other media.  

The motto of project SOAP is "Art dirties your hands and cleanses your spirit," said Dr. Bradley Jessop, chair of the Art Department. All classes and materials are free, but a donation to cover the expense of materials is welcomed.

For more information, contact the Ada Arts and Heritage Center at 332-7302 or Dr. Bradley Jessop at 559-5355.
