Freeport Arts Center offers Family Tree art project
Event for kids 7 and older set for 2-4 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 27
FREEPORTAre you looking for a fun and creative activity to do with the kids? Go to the Freeport Arts Center (FAC) and learn how to make a Family Tree art project together.
The Family Arts Workshop Family Trees will be from 2 to 4 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 27, and is for ages 7 and older with an adult.
This workshop encourages people to think about how we are connected to our families, past and present, said Collections Manager Jessica Caddell.
The work of artist Ellen Bartels, featured in the Newell Gallery, provides a visual example for the students to create their own three-dimensional family tree using drawings of family members and mixed media techniques.
Cost of the workshop is $3 per person for FAC members and $8 per person for nonmembers. All supplies are included, but space is limited. Contact the FAC office to register for the class. Payment by credit card may be made by calling (815) 235-9755.
FAC is at 121 N. Harlem Ave., and is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Tuesday-Friday and noon-5 p.m., Saturday. The museum is closed Sundays, Mondays and major holidays. Tours may be scheduled by calling (815) 235-9755. Admission to the Arts Center is free, although donations are accepted.
