Summer Arts Explosion! at the Open Doors Neighborhood Center at First United Church of Fulton will be held Tuesday, July 24 through Thursday, July 26.
The event will provide opportunities for kids to learn new skills and make new friends.
“Our three day workshops are designed to give kids a chance to learn some new things and make friends,” Pastor David Nethercott. “We expect it to be a wonderful experience.”
Arts Explosion will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. each evening at the church, which is located at 33 S. Third St., Fulton.
There is a small fee for the week but scholarships are available.
Children may register at the door. It is open to children ages 5-12.
The three days of workshops will feature hands-on training in drama, art, music, and creative writing. There are special activities for children ages five and six.
Summer Arts Explosion! is sponsored by the Children & Families team at the Open Doors Neighborhood Center and is aimed at children and families living in the city’s Fifth and Sixth wards, but is open to all children.
“When we began the Open Doors Neighborhood Center a year ago, our hope was programs to people who might not otherwise have access to them,” said Pastor Nethercott. “We believe the Arts Explosion does just that.”
ODNC will present an outdoor movie “Dolphin Tale” Friday, Aug. 17 at 8:30 p.m. on the church lawn. It is a free event.
