September 2, 10 AM-5 PM - Art Break Day at Life Needs Art
Friday, September 2, is Art Break Day, when everyone is encouraged to sit down for a few minutes and make art. You will be pleasantly surprised at how good you feel after only a few minutes of drawing or painting. Stop by Uncommon Art, 178 1/2 N. Main St., between 10 AM and 5 PM and try drawing, painting, or collage - or add to our giant coloring page! Also, we will be giving away mini art supply kits called "Art In Your Pocket" boxes. The event - and the art supply kits - are entirely free.
Art Break Day is a global event: More than 40 places around the world will be bringing communities together to make art all on the same day! That's remarkable, isn't it? To find out more, visit:
