Color Kids Art Classes

With a goal of enhancing and sharing the wonders of art and creativity with youth in the Oshkosh area, local artists Jenna Larson and Mandy Mitchell teamed up to launch Color Kids Art Classes in 2012.

Classes are designed to work with ages 6-15, including all ranges of skill and experience.   Sessions this summer will be held in a large modern space provided by Water City Church in Downtown Oshkosh at 217 N Main Street. Parents have an area to lounge while students create, though there is no requirement for parents to stay.

For registration, email  Prices include class instruction and all materials. Classes fill on a first come, first serve basis. Completed registration forms and payment secure placement in classes.
