According to Education Director Dianne Federaro the classes are designed for children ages 8-12 will focus on the theme of “urbanology.”
The classes will take place twice a week for 8 weeks and will include performing and visual arts classes, with one class teaching hip-hop dancing to the kids.
The ARTree needs two assistants for six of these classes and is looking for people who enjoy working with kids and want to volunteer to provide extra help for the program.
Although no experience is required for the assistant positions, teachers at the community center have a background in either visual or performing arts and will be educating the kids in their respective fields. Both the assistants and teachers work as volunteers for the ARTree.
The classes will begin this week and will be held Wednesday evenings this summer from 5:30-7:30. Federaro said the ARTree could always use new assistants and will be in need of a teacher with art background by the end of July.
If you are interested in applying for one of these positions contact Dianne Foderaro at (661)253-3911 or ARTree President Bob Hernandez at (818)634-4180.
