Art Produce: Where Culture Meets Community
By Elizabeth Silva September 16, 2016
We all know kiddos are naturally creative. Maybe they’ve found an artistic passion squishing through their pudgy little fingers on a pottery wheel. Maybe inspiration comes on a drawing pad or into the creation of a finger puppet. Whether your wee ones love to sculpt, build, paint, weave or draw, they’ll find something to create and call their very own at Art Produce’s Community Art Classes. And for you, Parents? We’ll meet you in the urban garden, the Gallery, the tasting room or eatery. Read on to find out why Art Produce has it all!
