Evanston Art Center - Summer 2012 Youth Art Classes & Camps
Get messy and have fun with art! The Evanston Art Center offers unique art education experiences for children to learn and better understand the visual arts through hands-on art making activities in a variety of media. We offer week-long camps for ages 6-8, 9-11, 12-14 and regular youth classes from ages 4-13.
In addition to our youth summer sessions, the EAC offers an exciting collection of spring-term classes for youth and high school students that are designed to inspire and encourage the artist within. Exploring creative expression through crafts with pastels, water colors, and paints in Art Explorers (ages 3-4/5-6); using a range of design and sewing techniques to make ordinary t-shirts extraordinary in T-Shirt 101 (ages 10-13); and gaining film-making abilities while producing videos, music videos and documentaries in Video on the Go! are just a few of the ways in which our Youth Fine Arts students can develop their creative talents at the EAC this coming spring! Classes start March 26th so sign up now!
To register for spring or summer classes, please visit our website for an online catalog or stop by the center to peruse one of our print catalogs.
Gross Point Road and the circle drive in front of the school are a very busy and congested area at the beginning and end of the school day. Parents and caregivers can help keep this area safe for our students by following these basic driving rules:
LINCOLN JR. HIGH:
Parents or guardians picking or dropping off students should enter the main parking lot off of Babb. They will drop off or pick up on the right side of the first lane of the parking lot. Cars need to stay to the right side throughout the process until after they exit the lot, at which point, they will proceed around the main lot and exit once again on Babb. We are recommending that all parents and guardians use this pattern as the only place for dropping off and picking up students. Due to the close confines of our parking area, it is imperative that parents and guardians follow these procedures so as to ensure the safety of all our students.
The entrance into the back parking lot from Laramie/Lincoln Avenue is one way heading east. Cars in the back parking lot may not travel west onto Lincoln/Laramie. They must exit onto Main Street. Drivers who enter the Kindergarten circle drive will have to take a right, drive through the back parking lot, and exit onto Main Street. There is no parking in the circle drive at any time and no part of Lincoln Avenue may be blocked. This area is for student drop off/pick up only.
Drivers may not leave their vehicles unattended while in the circle drive. Students must enter cars from the curbside only; they are not permitted to enter from the driver’s side as a safety precaution. Drivers may not ever leave their vehicles running and unattended on Madison School premises. Parents may not use the bus lane (Madison Street side) during bus drop off/pick up (from 8:15-8:45AM and from 3:00-3:45PM). Parents who want to leave their vehicle to drop off/pick up, must park on the north side of the building, across from the gardens, to allow traffic to flow easily.
The Curragh has partnered with the District 69 PTO and agreed to donate 18% of their proceeds to District 69 schools from the sales on the first Tuesday of every month.
