Dear Saturday Art School families,
For the past fifty years, the Art Education program at the University of Illinois has enjoyed offering enriching visual art learning opportunities for local children and families. With significant shifts in both public education and how teachers are licensed to teach, our program is in the process of redesigning our curriculum to best prepare our students for the certification process and their future careers as art educators. This new direction means that we will no longer offer our Saturday Art School program. We appreciate that this news may come as a disappointment. For alternative opportunities for your children, we encourage you to check with your local park districts, which often offer arts programs that cater to children and young people. In the meantime, we will keep this listserv active to keep you abreast of any new programming offered by the Art Education program.
