Kid Events at Artomatic

Artomatic offers free events for kids every weekend

If you’ve got a budding Frida Kahlo or Pablo Picasso in your family, Artomatic will be the place for your kids to be this spring. The five-week event will include more than a dozen free children’s activities, including hands-on workshops, tours and other arts-related attractions.

Free children’s activities are scheduled for every weekend of Artomatic, which will be held May 18– June 23. The kid’s events kick off Saturday May 19 with a community paper quilting bee at 1:00 pm and continue with drawing, theatre games, self- portraits, drum circles and more on subsequent days. Kids will get to express their creativity through hands-on activities such as making their own mobiles, dancing or fanciful paper hats.

All Artomatic children’s events are free, but space may be limited. Ages 12 and under must be accompanied with a parent during kids activities. Please RSVP online to reserve your space. For questions or more information on the children’s schedule contact the Children Co-Chairs, Nancy Ables and Fran Atkinson at kids@artomatic.org
