The Abington Club is now offering art classes for children ages 6-12 years old. Young artists can join their favorite instructor, Alyssa Abel, to create masterpieces using mixed media inspired by famous artists. Art is not just for those who are super creative. It’s also a means of educating young children and helps develop fine motor skills. Art is fantastic for everyone, even if your child isn't the next Monet.

Classes will run for six weeks on Saturdays at 10AM from October 7-November 11. All six classes are just $120 or $100 for club members or $25 per class or $20 for club members.
