Family Art Day Extravaganza

The River Arts Alliance and Winona Parks & Rec are happy to announce the sixth year of the FAMILY ART DAY Extravaganza to be held on Saturday September 7, 10am to 2:30pm at JAYCEE PAVILION, Lake Park. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund and with generous support from Slaggie Family Foundation, King Foundation, Winona National Bank, Wenonah Canoe, WSU Art Department, and US Fish & Wildlife.

Family Art Day is an interactive art adventure for all ages. The goal of the art day is to celebrate the arts through fun family art activities that continue River Arts Alliance efforts to promote arts in the community through hands-on activities and experiential learning that provide exposure to different art mediums and develop appreciation for the processes of making art while having FUN!!!

THE EVENT IS FREE & OPEN TO ALL AGES.  Attendees will be able to move from one activity to another.  Most could complete many art pieces and processes in the course of the day and could have numerous pieces in process at one time.  Try your hand at throwing a pot on a wheel, make a glove doll, paint a mural and many other art projects. Some are new and some we have every year. The hours for the art projects are 10am to 2:30pm. Registration period begins at 9:30am and continues throughout the day.
