More classes available at Kimball

Dan Bischoff, Of the Record staff.

The Kimball Art Center’s classes are in hot demand. Classes were scheduled this summer and the numbers of Parkites that came shocked the center.

"I am amazed at how many people are walking in our door to ask about the classes," said Susan Thomas, public relations director. "All of the classes filled and we had to create more classes and we had to hire an assistant to be able to accommodate the demand. All of the sudden everyone wants to learn to paint, to weld, to take a pottery class. It is great to see people expanding their minds, learning about art and having a fun time."

"Annie Kennedy, the director of education at the Kimball Arts Center is enjoying the demand for more classes.

"I had to create space for at least 200 more kids than we planned on. Mostly the kids classes are filled up, the word is getting out that we have good classes. We have a lot of people come back and we have a lot of fun with the kids. I came in last year and it was the first time the Kimball had an education director. I planned a few more this year and everything got slammed and I had to open up more sections of the classes and create new ones."

The center will also hold classes in the fall after the Park City Arts Festival is over.

"We will have a great lineup in the fall in the afternoons, evenings and Saturdays," Kennedy said.
