Door County Medical Center (DCMC) would like to remind the public that the Art for Health workshops for children are beginning at the end of January. These workshops are free to the public and are very popular.
The Art for Health program is a series of free workshops for children, ages 4-7 & 8-12 years old, that focus on health, music and art using performance, demonstrations and other fun activities with popular regional and local visual and performing artists as facilitators. These classes strengthen each participant’s relationship with art and emphasize how creativity in a child’s life contributes to their overall health.
Each Art for Health session runs for five consecutive weeks. Participants can choose a Tuesday (ages 4-7) or a Wednesday (ages 8-12) class. The first sessions begin Jan. 17 and Jan. 18, and they run through Feb. 14 and Feb. 15 in Sturgeon Bay.
Classes include: Paint Me A Story (Jan. 17), Jewelry Making (Jan. 18), All That Jazz (Jan. 24), Musical Theater (Jan. 25), Paint Me A Song (Jan. 31), Fanciful & Fantastic Puppets (Feb. 1), African Drumming (Feb. 7), Songwriting for Kids (Feb. 8), Cooking Class (Feb. 14) and The Art of Storytelling (Feb. 15).
Another set of classes for Northern Door will run on Thursdays beginning the week of Feb. 16, running through the end of March. All Sturgeon Bay classes will be held at Door County Medical Center in Sturgeon Bay at 4 pm. Northern Door classes will be held at Gibraltar Schools in Fish Creek and start at 3:30 pm. Parents are encouraged to sign their children up for all five sessions. Call Terry Lundahl at 920.493.5979 to reserve a spot for your child. Class size is limited so reserve a spot soon.
