Dabble in new art forms (Feb. 2, Mar. 1, Apr. 5)

January 29, 2008

Although The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis is a performance troupe, its Kids ArtStart isn’t limited to drama.  The free Saturday-morning series has three dates left this season:  This coming weekend, Feb. 2, is “Get Your Hands Into Sculpture,” presented by Krueger Pottery.  Then there’s “Music Is In the Air” (Mar. 1), presented by Kirkwood Children’s Chorale and Xylomania!, and “Play Your Part” (Apr. 5), presented by Shakespeare Festival of St. Louis.

There’s no age limit or registration requirement — just show up at The Rep in the Loretto-Hilton Center, 130 Edgar Road in Webster Groves, at 10 a.m.  For information, call 314.968.7340.   However, this isn’t a drop-the-kids-and-run-errands kind of program.  Families are encouraged to stay and learn with the kids.  And anyway, how long has it been since you tried to make something out of clay?  Aren’t you a wee bit curious if your bowls would turn out more symmetrical than they did back in elementary school?   It’s also a nice chance to introduce kids to arts organizations they may want to explore more in the future; many of the presenters offer summer and evening classes for kids.
