FREE & Open to ALL!

All are welcome to attend this free, family-friendly fall event!







The Cultural Center in New York Mills presents a special Art in Your Park in Wadena on Sunday October 6, 2019.  It will be a fun afternoon exploring art and gardens for kids and parents. There will be:

  • natural dye tie dying
  • found object prints
  • making “garden bombs”
  • special session of guided painting for kids.


There will be a “Paint & Cider”  session for children ages 8 and up. Participants will paint a fall picture of apples and leaves (and maybe even a worm!) while enjoying apple cider. “Paint & Cider” will be held from 3:00-4:00 and will be open to the first 20 children who sign up at the event.

In addition to the art projects, there will be apple tastings, apple cider, and apple carving with Kent Scheer of Green Island.

Kent’s family homestead, Green Island, is open to the public to enjoy a stroll along trails and past gardens, sculptures and woods.  In the winter, Green Island’s trails are great for skiing, snowshoes, or kicksledding (provided by Green Island).


This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Five Wings Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.

Thanks to both Five Wings and Green Island for making this collaborative, free, family-friendly event possible!
