WIU Hosting Art Program
The Western Illinois University Art Department will offer a free Community Art Program for students in grades 1-8 over three Sundays in October and November.
Classes will be held Oct. 29 and Nov. 5 and 13. Classes for grades 1-2 will be held from 1-2:30 p.m. in Garwood Hall, room 24; grades 3-4 will be held from 1-2:30 p.m. in Garwood Hall, room 25; and grades 5-8 will be held from 3-4:30 p.m. in Garwood Hall, room 24 each Sunday.
This program is designed for students in grades 1-8 interested in exploring various art topics. Students in grades 1-2 will have the opportunity to create art pieces related to nature, such as a tree, a spider web dream catcher and a corn cob with texture. They will work with colors in both two and three-dimensional art to develop their artistic skills. Students in grades 3-4 will learn 2D design and 3D creation techniques. They will create woven owls, a stained glass fixture and a layered cutout using paper landscape scenes. Students in grades 5-8 will design and construct their own haunted house by creating a patterned fabric by carving stamps and transferring the design with fabric paint.

It’s the most fun you will ever have playing bingo!
