Programs allow young people to immerse themselves in arts
The fourth annual Youth Fine Arts Institute and Teen Arts Institute, sponsored by Soldotna Community Schools, were a great success. Nearly 150 students in grades pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, spent a week at Kenai Peninsula College immersing themselves in the arts. Sixteen instructors worked with the children in all areas of art -- stained glass, dance, computers, African drumming, etc.
Our thanks to Kenai Peninsula College for hosting our program, Diane Taylor of the KPC Learning Center and Americorps volunteers Renee Graham, Vicki Heinz and Brenda Hough.
The Alaska Alliance for Arts Education always shows its support of all youth opportunities in the arts, as well as the Phi Delta Kappa Sorority -- we appreciate their help with registration, and Harold and Kathy Thornton for remembering us each year.
The success of the Youth Fine Arts Institute and Teen Arts Institute is dependent on folks who are consistently behind the work we do -- with your help and support, we plan to continue providing quality youth programs.
