THIS MONTH- *Family Art Project

Theme is “A Family Dream”

October 9th, 2014 at 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm at FamiliesETC

Join us as we work together to demonstrate how we “fit together” as a puzzle of friends & family to form the ultimate big picture of hope & support for our community through this very special group art project.

Families will enjoy quality time together & create art pieces showing their interpretations & visions of the value of a happy, healthy, and supportive community.

NOTE: Please wear appropriate clothing. We encourage your family to bring a “special touch” from home to include in the construction of our community art piece.

Some suggested materials for this project are: glitter, lace, magazine pictures or photos, greeting card covers, block letter cut outs from articles, ribbon, or stickers. 

*This Family Art Project will be submitted as one of the community art pieces that FamiliesETC is contributing to the Community Partners Wellness Network 6th Annual Art Show promoting Mental Health Awareness for All! The show is being showcased at the Historic Dole Mansion and Lakeside Legacy Arts Park at their First Friday event on November 7th, 2014.
