Mall gallery expands workshops

The Art Outreach Gallery is expanding its summer workshops and children’s programs this year.

Due to the overwhelming response and success of the youth art programs, additional youth classes have been added to the schedule from June 24 to July 13 at the Art Outreach Gallery, located inside the Eastwood Mall, 5555 Youngstown-Warren Road, Niles.

Twenty-five workshops are scheduled including “Making Recycled Paper,” “Robot Shop,” Spanish classes, “Summer Aquarium Adventures with Captain McFinn,” in addition to creative art classes. Workshops are designed for students ages 3 to 18. Area art educators and education students will conduct the workshops.

Due to donations from local foundations, the gallery board of directors and community volunteers, there is no fee to enter the classes. However, space and supplies are limited, and students must register to enter the classes.

RSVP by completing the registration form and drop it off at the Art Outreach Gallery, the Eastwood Mall Customer Service Center or fax to 330-544-5929. Class information and registration forms can be downloaded at www.artoutreach. org, picked up at the Art Outreach Gallery or the Eastwood Mall Customer Service Center.
