MARBLE FALLS — As Highland Lakes students take their summer break, classes at ArtFrog Art Academy in Marble Falls are taking registrations.

Spots for the free, three-day kids camps and adult workshops are filling fast.

The first classes are June 10-12. Each camp is free to attend but requires a $20 refundable registration fee to reserve a spot.

The academy moved to its Marble Falls location, 301 Main St. #200 in Old Oak Square, a year ago. Along with classes such as jewelry making, painting, tie dyeing and mosaic, a few new classes will be offered including concrete art, magic and comic book drawing.

Executive Director Heike Jost said it’s best to register in person. The academy’s hours are 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday-Friday.

“We like to have the registration set the Friday before the next week’s class,” Jost said. “We do have a waiting list for some classes.”

Size ranges from 12 to 15 people per class. Jost said if ArtFrog has more volunteers, it can accommodate larger classes.

“We’re trying to find more volunteers so we can have more kids in.”

Children’s camps are 9-9:50 a.m. for ages 3-7 and 10 a.m.-noon for ages 7 and older. Classes for adults and teens are 1-3 p.m.

The schedule can be found on the academy’s Facebook page. Registration forms also are at the academy’s front door and can be left in the mailbox there.

ArtFrog Art Academy is a nonprofit organization that relies on donors for its operations.

“It’s still all donors and teachers that bring supplies,” Jost said. “That’s what I’m really thankful for.”
