Connect Your Summer
We all have a unique and creative ability. Especially children! On August 10 from 2:00-3:00 PM, Kathy Baker, fine artist, graphic designer, and CCS instructor, will present her Young Rembrandts art program to children kindergarten through 5th grade. By introducing her cog-art philosophy, children will learn to express themselves in a safe, fun and non-judgmental environment - an environment that tunes in to the unique individual needs and talents of each participant.
