Dorchester Star - - What’s Up -

CAM­BRIDGE — The Dorch­ester Cen­ter of the Arts has been granted schol­ar­ships to­tal­ing $4,500 for its sum­mer art pro­grams for chil­dren from the Mid­Shore Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion’s Ge­orge B. Todd Fund. These schol­ar­ships are avail­able to Dorch­ester County chil­dren who wish to par­tic­i­pate in sum­mer art classes at DCA.

“We rec­og­nize that in Dorch­ester County eco­nomic con­straints can pre­vent par­ents from en­rolling their chil­dren in the arts,” said Mickey Love, DCA Ex­ec­u­tive Direc­tor. “With this tremen­dous gen­eros­ity of funds, that ob­sta­cle is elim­i­nated, and we are truly grate­ful for the sup­port of the Ge­orge B. Todd Fund. We en­cour­age par­ents to sub­mit a schol­ar­ship ap­pli­ca­tion for their chil­dren.”

DCA sum­mer pro­grams be­gin Mon­day, June 20, and run through Aug. 12 with themed week-long classes, which are de­signed based on age and ac­cord­ing to at­ten­tion span, hand size and man­ual dex­ter­ity. These pro­grams are in­structed by pro­fes­sional artists, and par­tic­i­pants will learn new art-mak­ing skills, tech­niques and meth­ods to en­cour­age self-ex­pres­sion, cre­ativ­ity and col­lab­o­ra­tion.
