Weather-permitting, Community Art Day will include several outdoor events this month.
Artists of all ages are invited to the Collingwood Arts Center from 12-3pm on July 27. There will be face painting and games, complemented by a baked goods sale.
“We’ll be doing a lot of crazy stuff this Sunday like sidewalk chalking and other outdoor activities, anything we can come up with,” said Lexi Staples, organizer for Community Art Day.
Each event features 5 different art projects aimed primarily at kids. Past projects include moccasins, pet rocks and dinosaur drawings.
“Art Day is a free event, but we do accept donations for funding,” said Staples.
Adults are also invited to Hardcore Crafters, another Collingwood Arts Center event Staples will be hosting a few times each month.
“It’s two hardcore crafts and two hardcore craft beers,” said Staples. “Two weeks ago we did printmaking, and we’ve also included wood burning.”
“We’re excited to offer arts programming for the entire community. We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response,” said Sarah Kurfis, interim executive director for the Collingwood Arts Center.
Each event features 7 craft beers for artists to choose from, including Maumee Bay Invasion and summertime IPAs.
Upcoming Hardcore Crafter events are from 7:30-10:30pm July 26 and 31. Admission to this event is $19/person or $30 for 2 people.
