Arts in My Backyard (AIMBY) brings arts educators and their programs to the Council, providing exposure for partner organizations as well as opportunities for youth and families to engage with the visual arts, dance, drama and music in Lake Worth. AIMBY maintains the following objectives: ongoing afterschool arts classes in the Council’s headquarters, transportation-funded field trips to the Council’s galleries and monthly intergenerational Family Saturday events.
Families are invited to discover the arts together, working side by side, as they connect, create memories and acquire new skills through visual art, dance, drama and music.
This intergenerational series of workshops takes place at the Cultural Council in downtown Lake Worth and is open to all ages. Family Saturdays are free and open to the public, but advance registration is encouraged as spots are limited.
