Pottstown, PA – The mission of non-profit ArtFusion 19464 is to make the arts accessible to everyone in the greater Pottstown community. As part of their ongoing efforts to live that mission, ArtFusion will be offering three free art programs this summer for children ages 7-12.
Two of these fun and engaging programs are sponsored by the Greater Pottstown Foundation. Kids Art Academy is a general arts exploration class, where students explore two- and three-dimensional arts. Students in Clay Academy delve into all aspects of creating with clay. Participants will work on handbuilding and also have a chance to work on a pottery wheel.
Local young artists will also have a chance to expand their drawing skills while learning about a new language. Drawing with Hebrew Letters, sponsored by Sager and Sager and The Jewish Women’s League of Congregation Mercy and Truth, will introduce students to drawing using a creative language of letters and shapes. This free program is open to artists of all faiths. No prior drawing experience or knowledge of the language is required, just a desire to learn and create. Students will create with ink, paper and color, learning to express with their hands what their imaginations see.
Applications can be picked up at ArtFusion’s 254 E. High St. location or downloaded from their website at artfusion19464.org/classes/scholarshipsprograms/. Applications are due by May 31. While preference is given to those students who qualify for free or reduced lunch, all students are strongly encouraged to apply.
ArtFusion 19464 is a 501(c)3 non-profit community art center. The school offers day, evening and weekend classes to all ages.
