Register Now for One-Day Saturday Summer Workshops at NMT

SOCORRO – The New Mexico Tech Community Education Program (former Community College) is offering a series of eight, all-day summer arts workshops, and a discount for students who register for two workshops before Friday, June 10.

The workshops, which begin on Saturday, June 11, coincide with the start of the Summer 2011 semester at New Mexico Tech on Tuesday, June 14, that also lasts for eight weeks.

“We’re really excited about the new arts workshop series, and so are our instructors,” said Lillian Armijo, Community Education Program Coordinator. “We’re delighted both with our new instructors and those returning for another semester.”

The workshops run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays at the Fine Arts Center, and the $50 fee, for each workshop, includes lunch at the M Mountain Grill and all necessary materials. Armijo said those who preregister before June 10 will receive the second workshop for $40.

To preregister, contact Armijo at 575-835-6581; or at larmijo@admin.nmt.edu. Students also can register on the day of the workshop from 8:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. at the Fine Arts Center.
