The Kent Historical Society offered two weeks of art programs for children in July for children interested in developing their fine arts skills.
Summer Art Enrichment Program
Artist Cheryl Moore led two weeks for children in exploring visual arts beginning July 7. Moore is a respected artist and a 32-year teacher, who knows how to draw out artistic talents from her students. She is chairman of the Art Department at South Kent School and she has offered a number of special workshops for younger children over the years.
Mrs. Moore exposed the youngsters to a variety of artistic styles, cultural interpretations, and mediums. She explored several watercolor projects, florals with pastels and mixed media. Classes were held in the Kent Historical Society’s Art Barn, an indoor/outdoor space on the campus of the Historical Society’s Seven Hearths property, facing garden and woodland used as extended classroom space.
KHS expects to offer this program again in Summer 2015.
