New Saturday Rhein Center Classes Open for Early Registration

Staff Blogger: Ellen Venema, Assistant Coordinator of the C. Kirk Rhein, Jr. Center for the Living Arts

This summer, the Rhein Center will hold classes seven days a week, increasing the activity options for weekend Lakesiders. In addition to hosting Art in the Park on Sundays, the Rhein Center will now hold classes 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays June 30-Aug 18 in Epworth Lodge.

Special Early Registration

Unlike the weekday class registration, which will continue to open at 8 a.m. on the Thursday before each week of classes, the new Saturday classes are available for registration anytime throughout the summer. Online signups opened May 1 and in-person registration will be available starting June 4.

How to Sign Up

To see all the available classes, visit, and follow the links to the course catalog.

When searching the Active database of class listings, be sure to check the Saturday box on the left sidebar menu.

This year’s offerings will vary week to week and include classes in painting, sewing and crafting. Rock painting will be an option each Saturday.

Continue to check back during the summer, as more classes may be added. You can also stop by on Saturdays to see what late additions are available.
