EAU CLAIRE -- The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Arts & Sciences Continuing Education Office will offer after-school art classes for grade school students.

Classes will run from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. every Monday or Tuesday at Immaculate Conception School, 1703 Sherwin Ave., starting the week of Oct. 20.

The eight-week session offers opportunities for children in grades one to five to learn about, explore and create art. Each class includes an introduction to new ideas, demonstration of new techniques and work time so students can develop their own art work.

The Monday sessions are for children in grades one to three and focus on printmaking. Students learn how to make their own paper, print fish, create postcards, decorated paper and colorful nature scenes, and study Impressionist and Japanese art.

The Tuesday sessions are for children in grades four and five. In theses classes, students will transform drawing ideas into sculpture using clay, plaster and fibers. They also will tour ceramic and sculpture studios at UW-Eau Claire.

Each session is $50, which covers the cost of tuition and art supplies. Registration is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.
