Inspiration Alcona offers four programs to help students at Alcona Community Schools expand their knowledge and appreciation of the arts. Three of these run during the school year, the fourth in early summer after school is over.
JUNE 21 - JUNE 30, 2021
Inspiration Alcona's annual summer art lessons are held at Alcona Elementary School, just south of Lincoln. Though the school is supplying the space, any student finishing the third through fifth grade is welcome, including homeschooled kids and those visiting grandma for the summer.
In 2021, Alcona Elementary art teacher Brooke Green will lead the first four sessions. Professional sculptor Autumn Bildson will lead the second four. A $10 fee covers all eight sessions.
Sign up at the elementary school office, 989-736-6413, to participate.
MOST SCHOOL FRIDAYS
On most Fridays right after school, Alcona Community Schools buses students in the fourth and fifth grades to the Lincoln Senior Center for two hours of art plus dinner.
Because of COVID concerns for senior citizens, the program had to be put on hold for the 2020 - 2021 school year. But we expect to begin again in the fall semester of 2021.
Sign up at the elementary school office. All materials are supplied.
Seniors are encouraged to join the kids in all the fun.
Each Monday, right after school, Joe Thomas, host of Harrisville harbor's weekly open mic Tuesdays, Dockside Jams, gives free guitar lessons to Alcona Community Schools students ages 14 and up.
Sign up at the high school office.
Bring your guitar if you have one, or you’ll be able to borrow one from Joe if you do not.
Each Tuesday, right after school, Joe Thomas (also the tech guru at the Alcona County Library) gives free ukulele lessons to Alcona Community Schools students in the fourth and fifth grades.
Sign up at the elementary school office.
