Capital arts event offers creative outlet
Saturday, July 21, 2012
Organizers at Capital Arts hope fun and art will be synonymous at their first Family Fun Day at Capital Arts in Jefferson City from 1-4 p.m. today (Saturday).
Jessica Dulle, executive director of Capital Arts, said the inaugural event is designed to bring families of all ages into the center.
“We hope families will come in and see the benefit, take time out and enjoy the Imagination Station and play some outside games,” she said.
Imagination Station is an indoor classroom where children of all ages are allowed to create their own art by using recycled and other goods. Dulle said a $1 donation is asked to help replenish art supplies.
Outside in the horseshoe pit, volunteers will teach horseshoe-based games, while in other areas there will badminton, washers, pin the tail on the donkey and others. There will also be an area for sidewalk chalk art.
The gallery itself will also be open. Dulle said the current exhibit is called “Celebrate” and features the work of 10 area artists. The gallery is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday-Thursday, and 1-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The event will take place at Capital Arts, 1203 Missouri Blvd., in the Washington Park area.
