ESCANABA - Students age 5 through 10 years old are invited to the Studio and grounds of the Bonifas Arts Center each Fridays in July for Art in the Park - Drawing on Dreams. There's a morning session from 10 to 11:30 and an afternoon session from noon to 1:30.
Children under 5 must be accompanied by an adult.
Working under the leadership of Eddie (EEdee) Moritz, the sessions include some outdoor fun and some indoor projects.

At each of the four sessions, campers will be introduced to the works of world-renown artists, and the project takes off with their inspiration and the description of student dreams.
The first session on July 6 will start with Joan Mir and Frank Lloyd Wright, and end up creating a Dream Window. On July 13, students will follow in Jim Henson's footsteps and create Dragon Puppets.
A Monster Me will be created on July 20 as Maurice Sendak did, and students can take him home to guard their bedroom. Finally, on July 27, youngsters will capture some of the area's dream landscapes and create Marc Chagall-style Dreamscapes.
Fee is $5 per session, or $16 for all four sessions. To register or for more information, call 786-3833 or visit bonifasarts.org.
The Art in the Park series is sponsored by the Gladstone Kiwanis.
