Arts Workshop Ready For Spring Sessions
Registration is open with new classes available.
The Morris County Arts Workshop, the non-profit organization which brings after-school art, music, language arts, and cultural programs to youth and seniors in Chester, Mendham and surrounding areas, announces registration for spring is now open.
Classes will start the week of Feb. 6, and will culminate with its Spring Showcase in May. New this semester are “half” sessions from six to eight weeks or traditional offerings from 11 to 12 weeks. Most classes are held at the Dickerson and Bragg Elementary Schools and Black River Middle School in Chester, and in Mendham at both Mendham Township and Mendham Borough Elementary and Middle Schools.
In addition to numerous music, art, dance and technology classes, new this spring are movie making; cartooning and Manga; chocolate creations; sewing; science and engineering; and Broadway musical to name a few.
In addition to providing outstanding music and art programs, Morris County Arts Workshop is in the process of raising funds to create a Home for the Arts on property in Chester donated to the organization by Chester Township Mayor Bill Cogger. Each year, the organization hosts a gala fundraising party in the spring. This year, Morris County Arts Workshop is planning additional events to raise funds for this wonderful venture. For further information on sponsorships available for its building fund and other programs, please contact Director Jane Shatz at (908) 531-8433.
