TAYLOR COUNTY—Not only does art allow for the expression of oneself, but it is also an outlet to relieve stress, calm and center the artist and allow them to tap into their creative side. Aside from that, but art can also be loads of fun!
To help youths get more creative this summer, the Taylor County Arts Council (TCAC) began offering a special art series called Art in the Park.
The traveling art series included stops at various local community parks and gathering places, to allow participants a change of scenery from which to draw their inspiration.
However, as the cooler weather starts to creep in, the TCAC will be wrapping up this summer series and will be holding their final Art in the Park event this Saturday, September 17.
Join members as they welcome kids to the Thornton Community Building, where they will get crafty and creative with gourds.
During this special event, children will work to make a scary, or cute, friend, just in time for fall and the Halloween holiday.
“It’s time to get your spooky on and be ready for the Halloween season,” organizers exclaimed.
While the opportunity is available to all youths, Art in the Park organizers require a parent or guardian to remain with children under five years of age for the duration of the craft.
The TCAC will be offering this Art in the Park meeting free of charge for participants.
“Come create a fun and spooky Halloween decoration with us,” urged a TCAC member. “The class will take place from 1:00-3:00 p.m., and again, is free to attend.”
