WILTON – Foothills Summer Arts is accepting registrations for its 17th annual July creative learning workshops for students who have just completed grades four to 12.

In workshops in art, theater, writing, creative movement and music, participants create original theater scenes, dance pieces and songs, as well as poems, stories and 2-D and 3-D art work.
