2016 Art in Your Park Schedule Announced!
Art in Your Park is back again! Fun art activities are offered on several dates at several times in several parks of several towns! Join us at YOUR park to get in on the good times!
Art in Your Park is open to all youth aged toddler through entering 7th grade. Children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by an adult or high school-aged sibling. All materials are provided and Art in Your Park is completely free, thanks in part to a grant from Lake Region Electric Cooperative’s “Operation Round-Up” program, as well as support from our local and regional business and individual donors. Thank you to Lake Region Electric Cooperative and all donors!
Hosted by Cultural Center staff and volunteer, Pam Robinson (pictured at right), Art in Your Park provides an outlet for kids to get some creative and mental juices flowing during the long and lazy days of summer.
