Summer Fine Arts Series made possible by generous donors


North Platte Kids Klub members will have the opportunity to learn about everything from painting and composing to theater and ballet this summer. 

Kids Klub provides after school and summer programming through the North Platte Public Schools. This year, the organization is partnering with Mid-Plains Community College to offer exclusive fine arts experiences July 15-19 for kindergarten through fifth grade students. 

The offerings wouldn't be possible without the generous support of the following organizations: the Nebraska Arts Council, the Nebraska Cultural Endowment, John Russell Applegate funds administered by the Mid-Nebraska Community Foundation and the Johnny Carson Foundation. 

"This is a really exciting opportunity that will expose kids to the fine arts through unique, age-appropriate activities provided by both local instructors and regional organizations," said Alecia Hothan, MPCC area grants coordinator. "We hope the program will be a huge success so we can expand it out to the public next summer."


The Nebraska Arts Council, a state agency, has supported this arts event through its matching grants program funded by the Nebraska Legislature and The National Endowment for the Arts and the Nebraska Cultural Endowment.
