The workshops will be held at the Elk Rapids Day Park, in the new Deborah Wentworth Memorial Pavilion. Instructors are professional teaching artists from Blackbird Arts, an independent arts education studio in Traverse City.
Hands-on creative exploration is the key to the workshops; kids and families will learn about sculpture as well as the works on display in the park.
Advance registration is required and begins Friday, June 20; click here or call (231) 421-8085.
About Walk of Art & Art Rapids!
Walk of Art is a permanent sculpture park with a rotating exhibit of works, organized and developed by Art Rapids! in cooperation with Antrim County. The exhibit will include up to 30 sculptures, with each piece on display for three years; most are for sale. The project is supported by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and administered by the NorthSky Nonprofit Network.
Since its founding in 2006, Art Rapids! has attracted thousands of visitors to the community for its annual art shows and free summer concerts, and has provided over $60,000 for scholarships, arts grants, community gifts and awards to artists.
