Art classes offered

Kenai Peninsula College is accepting registration for the sixth annual Arts Institute's "A Sense of Place." The one- to three-credit classes will begin Monday and run through June 13. "A Sense of Place" is devoted to improving literacy in the arts while supporting the belief that the role of the arts in learning is fundamental to language acquisition, creative thinking and an educated imagination.

The classes are offered to teachers and parents of home-schooled children. The experience will reinforce the message that while each of the arts is unique in expression, all of the arts communicate important ideas about humanity that may be integrated in the kindergarten through 12-grade curriculum. "A Sense of Place" is honored by the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. For more information, e-mail dvgray@gci.net.

While the camp is for players in grades seventh through 12th, players will be grouped according to ability and skill level, not age.

The camp is for any player who wants to unlock their hidden talents, learn to overcome fear and frustration, turn weak skills and attitudes into strengths and lock into a serving groove. Housing can be provided.
