Local elementary and middle school students are invited by Ball State's Department of Art to explore the theme of "Art & Entertainment" in its Saturday Children's Art Classes.

This semester, students will cover the design of images created for our enjoyment such as comic books, animation, puppetry, theatrical costumes, and more.

Classes will meet from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. every Saturday from Oct. 4 through Nov. 22 in the Art and Journalism Building. Pre-registration is encouraged. Classes are open to children in grades 1-6. Cost is $35 per student, with a family rate of $25 for each additional child.

Parents can register their students through the Web site,; click on Children's Art Classes and follow links for the enrollment form.

Registration will also be open on the first day of class on Oct. 4 from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. on the first floor of the Art and Journalism Building. Class size is limited to 20 students.
