ArtReach offers new classes this school year

Aug 30, 2017


Guitar for Teen Rockers, Jewelry Making, and Youth Musical Theater Club are just a few examples of the new classes being offered this school year as part of ArtReach.

The ArtReach program is an extracurricular activity open to all PA Cyber students in kindergarten through 12th grades, explained Amy Zachewicz, fine arts supervisor.

ArtReach is dedicated to showing students the importance of the arts in a civilized society, and giving them an appreciation for the role the arts play in their own lives.

According to Zachewicz, ArtReach classes will be offered at all eight of the regional offices— Allentown, Erie, Greensburg, Harrisburg, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, State College and Wexford.

All regional office locations will hold classes for a 12-week fall session.

"We have tons of new classes this year," Zachewicz said. "At least 80 percent are new classes."

Students can try their hand at Digital Illustration and the Art of Filmmaking, just to name a few of the newest offerings. Through a range of classes, students have many opportunities to discover, understand and participate in both the creative and performing arts.

Classes will start on Sept. 11.
