POTTSTOWN, PA – In addition to their regular class schedule, ArtFusion is very proud to offer six free programs during their winter spring session of classes. Two programs for kids are sponsored by The Greater Pottstown Foundation. For kids ages 8-12, Art Academy is a general arts exploration class where students work with many different mediums, and Clay Academy teaches students how to create with clay. Both classes begin February 26. The application deadline for these two programs is February 5, but applications will still be accepted until the programs are full.

Three teen programs are also sponsored by The Greater Pottstown Foundation. Teen Mixed Media Studio will introduce teens 13-17 to pottery, glass, drawing, painting and recycled art.  Mixed Media Studio begins April 6. Teen Clay Academy, which begins April 22, allows teens to explore both handbuilding and wheel work. The application deadline for both programs is March 16.

Poetry in Place is a brand new program that engages students in reading and listening to contemporary American poetry, including song lyrics.  Students will also participate in experiential activities, exploring how poetic devices help the poet and reader connect. This program begins on March 18 and has an application deadline of March 4.

Stretch, Read, Create! is a free program sponsored by the First Presbyterian Church and the Mary N. Porter Designated Fund of the Community Foundation of Broward County. In this fun program, preschoolers 3 to 5 years old and their parent will participate in a short yoga session, listen to a story and then create an art project based on the book.
