They are among more than 100 elementary education majors who will work one-on-one with the young workshop participants. The workshop gives children ages 6-13 the opportunity to learn through fun art activities and also serves as a laboratory for the Southeastern students. 

     HAMMOND -- Registration is now underway for Southeastern Louisiana University's popular Children's Art Workshop.
     Young artists, ages 6-13, can participate in morning or afternoon sessions of the annual summer workshop, which will be offered from July 8-18, Monday-Thursday. The morning session is scheduled for 9:30-11 a.m. and the afternoon session from 2-3:30 p.m., both at Southeastern's Clark Hall.
     Under the direction of more than 100 Southeastern elementary education majors supervised by visual arts professors Kim Finley-Stansbury and Ronald Kennedy, students will create artwork in a variety of media based on the theme "Telling Our Tales: Storytelling in Art."
     "Children will create collages, drawings, paintings, monoprints, and reliefs with Model Magic, as well as mixed media artwork," said Finley-Stansbury. "Older children will explore the medium of photography."
     Finley-Stansbury said that after seven days of art lessons, the students will participate in an "Art Open House," a display and celebration of their work.
     Enrollment is limited to 75 students per session. The cost is $45. Children will be enrolled on a first come, first serve basis.
     Application forms are available at Southeastern's Division of Continuing Education, located in room 103 of the University Center on University Ave. For more information, contact Continuing Education at 985-549-2301 or 1-800-256-2771. Information is also available online at
