Youth Programs at Shake Rag AlleyLet me extend a warm welcome to both old and new visitors to this website. Classes this summer will begin June 20th and will go until August 19th. The format is set for mid-morning and afternoon classes during the week. Most range in price from $10 to $12, and are an hour to an hour and a half in length. Classes that are 2 hours or more in length are $15. Look for many new classes as well as the return of old favorites, plus find evening classes for teens taught by Cheryl Smeja. Camps and workshops this year will include: a Magic Workshop, Pirates on Parade, Free Arts Camp, Pirates Camp, Pioneer Day, and Be in a Play.
You will notice a theme this year revolving around the mythologies of the seafaring pirates of Cornwall. We are offering a camp about them, and we will have our own version of these pirates on parade on the fourth of July. Please help us celebrate the cultural history and mythologies of the Cornish folk who helped settle Mineral Point.
We are pleased to have Mercy Lara, an art education student from UW-Platteville, as our summer intern, plus we are looking forward to assistance from a number of local volunteers. We have a great summer of activities and classes planned. Don't miss out. Scholarship funds available!
