Metro Arts Center offers youth art and music classes
Print this page

Last year, as soon as soccer and other outdoor sports ended, my kids got bored. And as the glorious fall days gave way to the dreary harbingers of winter, I searched high and low for affordable indoor activities for my preschoolers. I wish I had known about the Metro Arts Center, a division of Louisville Metro Parks, which offers classes for children, teens, and adults in the fine and applied arts.

Registration for fall classes has begun, so now is the time to combat weekend Wii marathons and enroll kids 8-13 in guitar or painting class or engage your creative preschooler with a stimulating art class. Pottery, cartooning, photography, screen printing, silversmithing, flute, and mandolin courses are also available. Class times and days vary, but most begin in October and end in late November or early December.

Check http://www.louisvilleky.gov/MetroParks/recreation/metroarts.htm or call (502) 937-2055 for more information.

Metro Arts Center is located at 8360 Dixie Highway, four miles south of the Watterson Expressway (1-264) and three miles north of the Gene Snyder (I-265).

About Anna Frye

After living in Chicago, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Colorado, my husband and I made our (hopefully? probably?) final move back to Louisville, where I was born and raised. Ahhh...it's nice to be home. Now I'm busy making sure my three little ones learn to love the quirks and traditions of their new hometown: Kentucky Derby Festival, no school on Oaks Day, grits and hot browns (not necessarily together), monograms, parks, festivals, and even our seasonal allergies.
