The Art Center, 1803 N. Seventh St., is set to begin a four-week class geared specifically to children ages 5 to 12. This class employs principles of painting, drawing and sculpture, but then moves into projects that combine a number of media.

“Creating Outside the Box” starts Friday, Oct. 4. For information on tuition and scholarships, call 970-243-7337, ext. 2, or visit A full schedule of fall, holiday and camp information for Mesa County children is available.
