Youth Programs 
at Shake Rag Alley
Greetings to all of our visitors, and a huge welcome to our website!  

2018 Classes will begin June 18th and will go until August 22nd. The format is set for mid-morning and afternoon classes; most range in price from $10 to $12, and are an hour to an hour and a half in length.

Camps and workshops this year will include:
  • Paper Mache Art for the Fourth of July Parade
  • Two Free Arts Camps
  • Pioneer Day
  • Be in a Play
  • and new this year, Seventies Camp (We will even have a free dance party for the Seventies Camp participants and their family members.)
We have quite a number of new instructors as well as new classes planned. We are fortunate in having Maureen Carlson, who teaches adult classes at the Center, who will be offering a polymer clay class in making a Magical, Mystical Mischievous Dragons. Makayl Olson, a young teen from Cottage Grove, will be leading a class in how to make her sophisticated looking bracelets. Evy Thuli will be teaching macramé (something that every Seventies Camp should teach). Jean Brings will be showing how to make lovely scented stones and fun soap-putty, and teaching some simple origami folding techniques. Linda Bernhardt will be teaching two sewing classes that will be great fun for beginners. I am also pleased to welcome back Lesley Macaulay, who will be teaching a painting and a beading class. Music and story-telling will be important features of our Free Arts Camps this year, and music will also be an important part of our Pioneer Day.

We have so many wonderful classes planned, and expect them to fill up fast, so sign up early. Don't miss out. 

Scholarship funds are available. Apply by filling out the form at this link, or call the office at 608-987-3292.
