CRESTVIEW — After several years of success at the county’s south end, Abrakadoodle art teachers are offering daytime classes for Crestview moms and their toddlers.

"Autumn Adventures with Mommy," a visual arts class for children 20 months to 4 years old, begins Oct. 15 and runs through Nov. 19.

Erin Bakker, the local Abrakadoodle group’s director, said response has been so considerable to courses offered in the county’s south end that instructors want to expand to north of the Shoal River.

With Abrakadoodle now offering classes at several Crestview-area elementary schools, Bakker said interest is high for additional art instruction opportunities for area kids.

"We have had such a good response," Bakker said. "There is a need in the Crestview area for this."

The $85 tuition covers supplies and instruction.
