Summer programs for children at PJC

Published or Revised June 28, 2017

Paris Junior College is again offering the popular Kids’ College and Junior Law Enforcement Academy this summer. New this year are two sessions of Sculpting with Clay for different age groups.

Sculpting with Clay is a pottery class meeting Monday through Thursday, July 10-13. A section for third-fifth graders will meet from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m., and a section for sixth through ninth graders will meet from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.

The pottery class is a great place for imagination to meet fun, messy skills. Techniques taught will include slab and pinch-pot, and different decorating techniques with an emphasis on texture. Students are encouraged to dress to be messy.

PJC Kids’ College will be held from July 17-20 and targets those completing grades K-5.

Classes are block scheduled and run from 8:20 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Parents may drop off their children starting at 8:00 a.m., and pick them up from 4:30 to 5:00 p.m.
