Montgomery College’s Workforce Development & Continuing Education unit is offering a one-day “Art Explosion” enrichment program for second through fourth graders on Saturday, December 7, 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the College’s Takoma Park Campus. The program is designed to enable students to explore art topics outside the traditional school curriculum.
An opening demonstration of African dance will be presented by members of the Resurrection West African Dance Theater of Washington, D.C. After that program, children will select three small group workshops from among the following: Odyssey in Videography; Artistic Nature; Basic Photography; Collage It; Creating Magic in Sculpey; Get Off Your Duff and Dance; Microsoft Paint Tips and Tricks; Paw Prints; Poetry, Artistry and Exression; Magic of Fused Beads; Art of Storytelling; and Art in Motion; An African Resurrection.
Instructors are drawn from the Montgomery College faculty and staff, Montgomery County Public Schools, and the community.
Parents may accompany their children to the workshops at no charge, or attend an optional parent workshop on charcoal portrait drawing for a small fee.
The fee for this one-day program is $70; non-Maryland residents add $20. The optional parent workshop fee is $25, $45 for non-Maryland residents.
