Winter Session of Art Rocks Kids Begins at Adrian College

Classes begin January 18 and conclude February 22.

Adrian, Mich. – The winter session of ARK (Art Rocks Kids), sponsored by Adrian College’s Art and Design Department, is now enrolling. Classes for first through ninth graders will be held from 9:30 a.m. until noon. The classes begin Saturday, January 18 and conclude February 22.


This year’s theme, “Once Upon a Sunny Isle,” will inspire students to imagine the sun-drenched Aegean and learn about Greek mythology. Projects will include making clay pottery “story vases,” sculpting column studies, designing mythological creatures, making coins, and painting portraits of Greek gods—the original superheroes. Older students often work with the teachers in a nearby classroom, on more complex versions of the projects.


Each instructional session will be held in Room 7 of the Mahan Center for Art and Interior Design. Taught by experienced art educator Debra Irvine-Stiver, and assisted by Adrian College Art Education students, these classes fill quickly.


The cost to attend is $70, which includes all supplies. To register, please contact Rebecca Ghena (rghena@adrian.edu517.265.5161 x4382) in Adrian College’s Conferences Office, located on the first floor of Valade Hall, at the corner of Madison and Williams Street. Registration fees are non-refundable.


Some scholarships are available, through the generous support of the Kappa Kappa Epsilon Society. Enrollment forms can also be downloaded from and mailed to Adrian College Conferences Office, 100 S. Madison Street, Adrian, MI, 49221.
