The Log Cabin Center for the Arts, 12700 Southwest Highway, Palos Park, is holding registration for summer outdoor art classes for kids in kindergarten through ninth grade.
Classes will meet from 9 to 11 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. One-week sessions begin July 1 and July 22. Two-week sessions begin June 17, July 8 and July 29.
Outdoor Art for Kids, nicknamed “OAKS” for the wooded environment of the log cabins, features an immersion into the worlds of art and nature. The children will explore the Children’s Farm and its surrounding woods, fields and creeks, which provide not only the subject matter for the young artists but also fun, action, inspiration and raw materials.
Summer art instructors Sarah Heflin and Heather Young will use a variety of artistic media and techniques, including drawing, painting, papermaking, papier mâché and printmaking. Classes are kept small to encourage individual self-expression and safe outdoor exploration.
A one-week session costs $60; a two-week session is $110. All materials are included in the price.
Advance registration is required. Call (708) 361-3650.
