Free Summer Art Classes for Kids

Starts July 5 at Oliver Art Center in Frankfort
By Ross Boissoneau | June 19, 2021

Keep your kids learning and creating with Summer Class for Kids at Oliver Art Center in Frankfort. Starting July 5 and running every Monday and Tuesday through Aug. 10, each class will include a brief lesson on an artist, his or her artistic period, and most famous works, plus give kids the chance to take on different projects relating to the day’s topic.

Some classes feature an outdoor activity, so kids are encouraged to come dressed for painting and the weather. Topics will include sculpture, plein air, watercolor, printmaking, hieroglyphics, and famous artists such as Klimt, O'Keefe, and Woods. All supplies are included but classes are offered at no charge thanks to the generosity of the Sally Guzowski Family Foundation. “They made it possible for us to give back to our community,” said OAC Executive Director Mercedes Michalowski.

Registration is required; go to tinyurl.com/3acmd2ut. Can’t make a Monday or Tuesday class? Good news for you, too: The art center’s creative space has also reopened, allowing you and your kids to peruse books on art, artists, and museums at any time the museum is open.
