Jennifer Martin will be starting ongoing children’s art classes at the Chesterton Art Center on Monday, Aug. 28 that run through the end of the school year. The goal is to introduce children to various artists, their styles and techniques, with projects reflecting what they are learning.

Classes meet weekly and are open to all ages and skill levels. Several mediums will be used including drawing, painting, papier mache, mosaic, sculpture, collage and more.

The schedule of classes is as follows:

-        Monday, 1-2 p.m., preschool 4-5 year-olds
