The Garfield Park Arts Center (GPAC) offers a program entitled Arts for All. This program allows community members of all ages (not just kids!) to discover their creative side. Participants can explore performance arts, visual arts, language arts, applied and new media arts through engaging, hands-on activities. Depending upon the project, participants will either take their work home, or they will contribute to a larger group project that remains on display for the duration of the activity.
The Arts for All program is designed for families, as an avenue for families to not only do art, but for them to think and talk together. Arts for All is a community outreach program, allowing local community members an opportunity to experience a free, fun and creative activity.
Bring your family in for a visit today! All children must be accompanied by an adult.
