Summer Art for Children Classes Offered at Chatfield College

Put away the gaming consoles and cell phones this summer—it’s no secret that encouraging your children to participate in art holds many benefits and plays an important role in development. These benefits include motor skills, language development, visual learning, cultural awareness, and decision making to name a few. So why put your child’s creativity on hold until school starts back up in August? Chatfield College is offering two, age-specific Art for Children classes as part of the summer enrichment line-up.

The Art for Children classes will be broken down into two age groups; ages 6-9 and 10-13. In the younger class, the students will create a variety of works including painting, print-making, 3D arts, and more. The older students will guide their own projects, and explore drawing, painting, sculpture, and fabric art.

Natasha Richiron, Fayetteville Elementary’s art and technology teacher, will be teaching both classes. Earning a bachelor’s from Ohio State University in Fine Art, Natasha enjoys sharing her passion with the students.

“I encourage parents to register their children for these fun classes, where the kids will get to do projects they normally would not be able to in regular school art classes,” she said.

The fee for each summer enrichment course at Chatfield is $40.  To register or to view other enrichment classes available this summer, visit www.chatfield.edu/summerenrichment or call 513-875-3344. Make sure to check out the schedule to find a course for yourself!
