ArtsNashoba is pleased to offer two art classes for young people beginning mid-September. Instructor Marjorie Vandreuil has taught drawing to all ages both privately and at community centers. She promises these classes to be relaxed and fun and urges all participants to come with a smile.

FRIDAY NIGHT FUN WITH ART is an opportunity for young artists age 12-18 to enjoy Friday nights with like-minded kids who aren't shy about exploring their creative interests and talking about them.

Students will be encouraged to go beyond the boundaries of technique and mine their imaginations. With guidance, students will explore ways to bring out creativity as well as gain art knowledge by drawing from observation.

Students will have the opportunity to experience college-level art instruction. This class may be helpful in building a college portfolio.

This session begins Friday, Sept. 19, from 6:30-8 p.m. in Groton. There are seven classes total in this initial fall session.

SATURDAY MORNING ANIMAL DRAWING is a beginner class designed for kids ages 8-11 who love to draw. Each student will have the opportunity to learn basic methods of drawing, rendering and shading.

Using their imagination and artists' materials, children will create a menagerie of their favorite animals both real or fanciful ... the possibilities are endless.

Classes begin Saturday, Sept. 20, from 10 a.m. to noon. There are eight classes in this initial fall session.


All art classes take place in the Parish House of the Union Congregational Church located at Main Street and Willowdale Ave., Groton.
