Art in the Town

Art in the Town, offered in partnership with Brickton Art Center, gives children ages 6-12 the opportunity to experience an art education through qualified art instructors from the Brickton Art Center in Park Ridge. The children will paint, draw, sculpt, and explore different art mediums in an effort to enhance their artistic abilities.

This program, now in its 16th year, is offered free of charge to qualified families based on income who are residents of Maine Township or have a child attending a Maine Township school. Participants will be provided with an art supply kit that includes everything needed to participate in this program. We have only 40 spaces available.

The next session will meet virtually via Zoom on Mondays from 4-4:30 pm for ages 6-8 and from 4:45-5:30 for ages 9-12 starting on March 1, 2021.
