The Niagara Art Trail is sponsoring a five-week literacy workshop geared toward children in grades 4-8 to be held from 5 - 7 p.m. every Tuesday in March.

The classes will be taught in the new Creativity/Learning center in the Ticklebridge Co-op Market at 12-14 Market Street in Lockport's Historic Bewley Building.
Katrina Krull will be running the workshop. She is a certified teacher who has been offering a variety of workshops and programs at various venues for over a decade. In addition to workshops, Katrina works as a substitute teacher in a number of school districts and also develops teaching resources which are utilized by educators throughout the country.

Students can attend any of the classes individually for $15 per week or attend the entire workshop for $60 (savings of $15). Details of each week’s class can be found online at To register for the workshop, call Krull at 225-4686.

Ticklebridge will remain open beyond normal business hours on evenings when classes are being offered.

Parents are invited to "hang around and browse the store or make themselves comfortable with a complimentary beverage," organizers said. Free wi-fi is available and "they can even use one of our workstations if they do not have a mobile device."

While the literacy workshops are geared strictly for younger students, Ticklebridge will host an "exploratory mixer" after the March 10 class to discuss adult learning possibilities such a book club or support group for authors, designed to inspire and encourage creativity. There is no charge to attend and all are welcome but reservations are suggested. For more information, call Ticklebridge at 514-4567.

Several other classes and workshops are said to be in the works, including include bead and wire and other jewelry making, wood burning, decoupage, basic drawing, and others. Future children's workshops will address individual subjects such as science, art, writing and music appreciation. Schedules will be released soon and will be updated on a bulletin board at the store as well
