SUMMER ROSARY WALK
Belleview Rosary Walk meets every Friday May through September. We meet in front of the Marians, 515 Belleview Blvd, and process around the top section of the Hill praying for our neighborhood, our city, and other intentions. We pray the Sorrowful Mysteries and the Divine Mercy Chaplet and then spend some time praying for individual intentions. Rain Cancels. All are welcome.

CENTER FOR MUSIC AND ART
The Center of Music and Art is pleased to extend an invitation to the homeschool community to join us in enriching the lives of children and young adults through the arts. The Center has long held to the principle that in education, as in life, it is personal attention that can bring out the best in us. Our excellent teacher to student ratio means that attention to the individual is a central part of our instructional philosophy.

This fall, we invite and welcome you to join us as we seek to serve the homeschool community through music, art, and drama education. We offer a homeschool art class the first and third Wednesday of each month. There are spaces available for private lessons in any type of instrument, voice, and art throughout the day. Many local homeschool students are already taking advantage of our flexible daytime scheduling.

We would also like to assist you in meeting the education needs of your children. Our excellent staff of trained professionals has experience in teaching a wide variety of subjects: art and music appreciation, music theory, choral ensembles, drama classes, and much more. We are planning to offer a Spanish language class and a homeschool chorus in the near future. We can also customize a group class of at least six students to suit your schedule.

Enrollment has also begun for the 2011 Fall Kindermusik program, which begins the last week of August and is designed for children age 3 months to 7 years. Kindermusik International is the world’s leading provider of music and movement programs for young children, enjoyed by over 1 million families in more than 60 countries. Certified instructors Alicia Hernon and Carolyn Glaub would be happy to welcome your children into the program.

Whatever your needs may be, The Center of Music and Art is ready to assist you. We welcome your input for class ideas and any other ways we can help. Feel free to call us at 740-264-3111 to discuss your needs or to schedule a meeting in person. You may email us at contact@musicandart.com, or visit our website www.musicandart.com
