ARTS AND CRAFTS, DRAMA

 

Art is an excellent outlet for children to express their creativity. Children come up with their own ideas and build self-esteem through projects in arts and crafts. A number of classes for a fee are available. A list of vendors for the "little artist' in your family for lessons and supplies is provided below:

Information on arts and crafts is scattered, limited and seems available only in bits and pieces. The information below has been gleaned from internet sites, flyers, newspapers, and park bulletin boards . As new information is collected we update prior information. If the item shows the year 2004 it has been updated. Information for 2003 remains because most programs from last year remain in existence and contact information will be of help for 2004.
