Eight-year-old Fiona Hutchens found her passion at the South Bend Museum of Art.
“Mommy, I just love this!” Fiona’s mother, Erica Fischbach, recalls her saying after coming home from her first pottery class at SBMA. “I want to do this all year next year!”
That’s why Erica was so happy to see the catalog of South Bend Museum of Art Summer Class offerings arrive in her mailbox, and to show Fiona that it is once again time to register for summer camps and classes. “She couldn’t wait until summer,” Erica remembers. It was her opportunity to feed her craving for the hands-on art making she has come to love.
Upon surveying this year’s options, Fiona decided to not only continue with pottery in “Youth Clay – Wheel and Handbuilding” with veteran SBMA instructor, Kari Black, but to try the “International Puppets and Fairy Tales” class too. In this new class offering, students will learn about and create art and puppets from various cultures and fairy tales around the globe.
There’s still time to register for these and other youth summer classes at SBMA. To learn more about our summer offerings, click here: SBMA Summer Youth
