EAST LIVERPOOL – The HHH Foundation Board has announced that Kim Hohlmayer has been appointed Arts and Crafts Program Director at the East Liverpool Area Community & Learning Centre. The Center is located at 110 Maine Boulevard, adjacent to the East Liverpool High School complex.

An open house introducing Hohlmayer to the community will be held at noon on Saturday, February 5 at the Center. Visitors will also be able to see the Center Art Room complex in the Center’s children’s wing. Hohlmayer plans to initially limit the number of students to around 15 per class, although the main classroom can accommodate 30 or more students at a time.

Hohlmayer has extensive teaching experience in several Eastern Ohio school systems. Her specialty as a teacher and also her favorite field are fine arts and crafts of all kinds. This includes clay modeling and pottery art work in addition to drawing and painting. She has her own oven to cook various products made by the students in her class.

She is now retired from teaching and dedicates her life as a volunteer to community service. Classes will usually be held in the center’s Art Room, but younger children can receive lessons in the Jay Room next door. It is planned that it will give courses for young people on three levels divided into 4 to 6 years old, 7 to 10 years old and young adults from 11 to 15 years old. All these courses are free for the student. There is also no charge for any materials donated by Hohlmayer and a patron of the Center.

Hohlmayer is also available to teach adults or group lessons privately at the art room for a fee. Her favorite area of ​​art is crafts. She may also be available to speak in front of local clubs and organizations. The local Rotary, Kiwanis, Lions, Scout Pack 43 and Guardians of the Children currently hold their meetings at the community center.

During the open house, parents will be able to reserve a place for their children for arts and crafts lessons. Initially, classes will take place on Saturday afternoons and Thursdays.
