The Kids Club of Jefferson County has received a grant of $950 from the Jefferson County Cultural Coalition to purchase art supplies and provide art classes to club members.
The Kids Club has scheduled a series of five art classes to be provided by instructor Jamie Chapman of Van Go, an outreach service of Arts Central in Bend.
In addition, $300 of the grant is to be used to purchase art supplies for other art projects led by Kids Club staff.
The first class was held on St. Patrick's Day and focused on creating landscapes using many different kinds of green. The class included a lesson on how to mix colors to achieve just the right shade.
The second class was held March 31, and there will be one class per month in April, May, and June. The Kids Club plans on putting on an art show in June to showcase the kids' work.
The classes are free for all Kids Club members, though class size is limited to 25. Club fees are just $25 per year and new members are welcome. To sign up, call the club at 475-7028.
