AIMBY - Arts in My Backyard - Family Saturdays

Did you know that students who participate in the arts have higher test scores and lower drop-out rates? And that family traditions provide a source of identity, strengthen family bonds and offer a sense of security?

The Cultural Council invites families to discover the arts together as they connect and create memories while acquiring new skills through visual art, dance and theater.

AIMBY Family Saturdays is a free program presented by various arts and cultural organizations in Palm Beach County. Each monthly event is hosted at the Council’s headquarters in downtown Lake Worth and runs from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

For more information, please contact our Education Department: education@palmbeachculture.com | (561) 472-3347.

Generously underwritten by: Celia Lipton Farris and Victor W. Farris Foundation, The Batchelor Foundation, and Jim and Irene Karp

 

Upcoming Family Saturdays

Processional Arts Workshop

Processional Arts Workshop

November 10, 2018

The Norton Museum of Art is undergoing a magnificent renovation! You’re invited to help celebrate the reopening by aiding Norton staff in making a life-size puppet at a Processional Arts Workshop (PAW)! The giant puppets will be carried in a festive procession around the Museum preceding the reopening. At the workshop, you’ll choose your favorite digitized work of art from the Norton Collection then “collage” it into a pattern, texture, or composition for a section of one of the gigantic puppets.

Of course you’re also invited to accompany the puppets during the processional march celebrating the Norton’s grand opening on February 9, 2019. This workshop is geared to families with children ages 6 and older. For more information about the workshop and procession, visit norton.org
