This year’s Family Arts Day is just around the corner! Join us at the Art Center on Sunday, October 10th from 11am – 4pm for an afternoon of arts, performance, food, and more! Here is a sneak peak of some of the highlights of this year’s event:
DANCE AND GROOVE WITH FRED THOMKE AND ROSEWOOD
WHEEL THROWING WITH ANNA CHOE & ALEXANDRO VERGARA
Get your hands muddy and learn to throw a ceramic pot on the wheel! Our skilled ceramic instructors Anna Choe and Alexandro Vergara will lead you through the steps to center, pull, and shape a small clay vessel that you can take home to air dry.
