Thursday, May 26, 2005

Raven Arnold, a Trumann native, who spent a summer semester in Florence in 2004 was selected by the Trumann Area Fine Arts Council to present a summer art workshop for young artists. The five day workshop is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. from June 20 -- 24 in the Fine Arts Building next to the Main Street Café.

Young people from kindergarten through fifth grade are urged to sign up by mailing an application to TAFAC, PO Box 185, Trumann, AR 72472. The $10 fee includes materials. Some scholarships are available to students who qualify.

Participating students will exhibit their work in the Fine Arts Building.

The TAFAC is pleased to have a qualified artist, teacher and local resident to present the workshop. Raven, a recent graduate of ASU is employed by the Jonesboro Public School to teach art in elementary education beginning in the fall. She is the daughter of Monte and Betty Arnold and plans to continue to reside in Trumann. She is a 2000 graduate of THS.

"I am excited because it will be a good introductory experience in working with elementary students," said Raven. "I hope the students will be as excited about the class as I am."
