Community Calendar Sept. 3-9, 2015

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On September 4, 10 a.m., at the high school, Clark County School District leaders are scheduled to hold a meeting asking for public input on the Capital Improvement money they have to spend.

We Care for Animals is holding a pet adoption this Saturday.  Adoption fees include vet check, vaccinations, spay/neuter and licensing.  Don’t breed or buy, adopt and give a wonderful fur baby a chance for a forever home with you.

Does your child like to draw and paint?  Kids 8 to 11 and 12 to 16 are invited to take free art lessons at the Mesquite Fine Arts Center starting September 5.   “Get Smart with Art” classes help kids move beyond their basic art skills.   The Virgin Valley Artists Association (VVAA) welcomes school-age children to participate in free monthly classes.

Enrollment is still available for both age groups.  Parents should complete a registration form for their student by September 4.  Registration forms can be obtained at the Gallery.

This is a 9-month program which introduces children to basic art skills.  Kids will work on learning to draw animals, make a collage, touch on digital photography, work with polymer clay, create fantasy art and paint with both watercolor and acrylic over the course of the program.

For more information on “Get Smart with Art” and other programs offered by the VVAA, visit the gallery Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. or call 702-346-1338.

Whatever activity they you are looking for, you can always find what’s happening right here in the community calendar every Thursday in print or everyday online at www.mesquitelocalnews.com/category/calendar.

Send all your activities to tphilswife@aol.com and please remember to put “community calendar” in the subject line so your event notice doesn’t get lost in cyber space.
