KALEIDOSCOPE YOUTH PROGRAM
Summer 2006
 

During the Summer of 2006, the Kaleidoscope Youth Program offered nine different classes, as well as five "Visiting Artist Series" special performances.  The class descriptions and links to photos are listed below.

KYP was made possible this summer with a generous grant from the Trinity Housing Corporation of Greeley, a separate, nonprofit entity of Trinity Episcopal Church of Greeley.  Trinity Housing Corp. also serves as the Board of Directors for Island Grove Village Apartments, The Grove Neighborhood Network, and KYP.

The "Visiting Artist Series" was funded by a folk arts mini-grant from the Colorado Council on the Arts.

From all of us, thank you.
