Spring ‘Fun With the Arts’ classes under way

RICHMOND — The Richmond Area Arts Council is still accepting students in grades 1-5 for the spring  semester of the “Fun With the Arts” after-school arts program.

Classes are conducted Monday-Friday from 3 to 5 p.m. at three hub schools: White Hall, Shannon Johnson and Glenn Marshall elementary schools.

Transportation for students in grades 1 through 5 from any elementary school in the Madison Madison County School District is provided to one of the three hubs. Students from private or parochial schools are encouraged to enroll, but the parents must provide transportation to the hub school of their choice.

Each student receives a snack and supervised homework time from 3 to 3:30 p.m. and classes are taught 3:30 to 5 p.m.
