LA CROSSE, Wis.—The art education department at Viterbo University is once again offering its popular Afterschool Art Workshop. Held Tuesdays Oct. 9 through Dec. 4 for children ages five to 12 (except Tuesday, Nov. 20), all classes are taught by Viterbo art education students under the supervision of Lisa Schoenfielder, associate professor and chair of the art department, and held in the Viterbo Fine Arts Center.

- Wildlife Adventures—using clay, paint, and a variety of media, students will produce artist’s books, mural paintings, prints, sculptures, and dioramas featuring real and imaginary animals, environments, and habitats.
- Costumes, Masks, and Puppets—with fictive and cultural stories as a guide, students will create costumes, masks, and puppets with a variety of materials.
- Galactic Exploration—with space exploration and science fiction as themes, students will create murals and build such things as spaceships and planetary dioramas using paint and a variety of sculptural materials.
- Vehicles—with technology and machines as ways to travel through time, over terrain, and underwater, students will use a variety of two and three dimensional media to create drawings, paintings, and sculpture as they explore the theme of vehicles.
Enrollment in the Afterschool Art Workshop is limited. Classes will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis and registration must be completed before classes begin. A fee of $35 per student, payable at registration, will be charged to cover the cost of materials.
