Community School of the Arts unveils fall programs

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State University’s Community School of the Arts will host an open house from 2 to 4 p.m. Aug. 26 in the Landini Center for Performing and Fine Arts at 300 N. Seventh St.

The Community School of the Arts is one of the new programs at Indiana State funded through the Unbounded Possibilities initiative. The Community School of the Arts provides hands-on arts learning experiences for children, youth and adults in the Wabash Valley while allowing ISU students who are majoring in the arts outstanding opportunities for experiential learning through teaching. This fall, the school will offer classes in art, music and theater.

“The Community School of the Arts is thrilled to offer a variety of adult programming this fall,” said Petra Nyendick, director of the Community School of the Arts. “Piano, ceramics, figure drawing, improvisation and private music lessons are some of the fun and exciting opportunities available. Our accomplished and talented arts instructors will assist beginning or advanced students of all ages to discover their creative potential.”

The open house will present an opportunity to meet the teachers, learn more about fall offerings and register for classes. Attendees can register for a drawing to win one free class of their choice. The drawing will be conducted at 3:30 p.m.

The fall lineup includes diverse opportunities tailored specifically for teens and children, including acting classes, guitar club and lab, beginning piano, beginning voice and private music lessons.

Musikgarten family music classes will be offered for babies (up to 18 months), toddlers (15 months to 3 years and for youngsters (3-5 years) and very young children (ages 1-5) to attend with a caregiver. Classes include singing, dancing, listening to music and playing instruments while developing a strong musical bond. Other Musikgarten classes include beginning piano and music makers, which builds music literacy.

Private lessons begin Aug. 20 with most of the music, theater and visual art classes beginning the weeks of Sept. 10 and 17. The school will be closed Nov. 19-24 for Thanksgiving.

Enrollment for some programs is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
