|Registrations Now Being Taken for American Girl© Art Class on Oct. 22|
Girls ages five to ten can step back in history through an American Girl© Art Class being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
The American Girl Collection© involves engaging stories about girls living at important times in the past which bring history to life for grade-school girls. Participants will explore the past and discover what life was like during the times of these characters.
During this two-session program, girls will join Kristen in 1750s Minnesota in making a calico cat and a handkerchief doll to play with. Felicity's colonial era get-togethers in Williamsburg, Virginia, were more elegant. For this segment, participants will stencil a placement and cut paper into decorative designs.

The cost for two 60-minute sessions is $24 per girl for Johnson County residents or $26 per girl for nonresidents. There is an additional supply fee of $5, payable to the instructor.
