Summer 2017 CLASSES AT ABK

PLEASE NOTE: Our classes are offered through the Milwaukee Public Schools Division of Recreation and Community Services and listed in the Summer 2017 Recreation Guide on pages 8 & 51. The Guides are mailed to all City of Milwaukee households and can also be found in all public libraries in the Milwaukee area. Here's a link to the online Guide. All City of Milwaukee residents may begin registering May 1st. Non-city residents may begin registering on May 8th. Registration continues through one week before your class begins if there are still spaces available. To guarantee a space, please register early! Registrations may be faxed, dropped off at Vliet St. or you may register online with a credit card at www.milwaukeerecreation.net. You may also register at the Weaving Center the day of the first class; however, it is always a good idea to phone us at (414) 267-5771 to make sure there are still openings in the class you want. See p. 2 of the Recreation Guide for further instructions. There is a Registration Form on page 3.
