|New Abrakadoodle® Digital Doodle and Kids on Canvas Programs Start Sept. 11|
The use of digital media and painting with acrylics are the topics of two separate new art classes for youth being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
Both classes are for ages eight through 12 and are being offered in conjunction with Abrakadoodle®, a private creative art education program. The classes are called Abrakadoodle® Digital Doodle and Abrakadoodle® Kids on Canvas. Both classes will take place beginning Sept. 11 at the Roland Park Community Center, 4850 Rosewood, Roeland Park.

In Abrakadoodle® Digital Doodle, participants will receive instruction in the use of digital cameras, photo printing, and how to use photographs in artwork. The work of famous artists like Ansel Artists will also be discussed. Participants will have a blast as they frame framed artwork. This program begins at 3:45 p.m.
In Abrakadoodle® Kids on Canvas, participants will have fun learning about painting with acrylics on a variety of canvas surfaces. The works of master artists will be introduced, along with vocabulary and technique and participants use a variety of fun supplies to create their own framed artwork. This program begins at 5 p.m.
The cost for either program is $50 per person for Johnson County residents or $55 for nonresidents.
