FREE All Ages

We are thrilled to invite you to join us for our ART CART Community Art Studio March Break Grand Opening starting next Tuesday, March 17th at noon, FREE for all ages.

The ART CART Community Art Studio programming was started to give our community members of all ages free opportunities to access art making tools and supplies to work on their own projects in a welcoming and accessible community venue.

The art making will be unguided and self directed for the most part, with workshops and artist led events occurring periodically. We have a plethora of tools and supplies, many of which have been kindly donated by our generous community members, like sewing machines, looms, knitting looms, knitting needles, wood burning kits, dremel, basic woodworking, printmaking, button maker, stamping, felting, painting, drawing, and sculpture. The list of supplies will grow and change as time goes on…

We’ll be starting things up on Tuesday, March 17th, 12-4pm with St. Paddy’s Day DIY buttons, cake (first come first served), music, and face painting!

Wednesday we’ll be trying out terrific textiles with weaving, knitting, sewing and felting!

Thursday we’ll find out how much wood would a woodchuck chuck…
wood burning, carving, and sculpture building!

Join us for free and fancy fun times with fine art!
Tuesday – Thursday, 12-4, March Break.
This programming is FREE and for all ages! CStop by and see what tools and supplies we have to use. :)

This program is due in part by the generosity of the 4Cs Foundation, Councilllor Sam Austin and many Community members!

The ART CARTS will be open regular hours on Thursdays, 2pm – 5pm and Sundays 11am – 3pm weekly starting March 26th.

This is a volunteer opportunity, and donations of funds and supplies are always welcome!
