In conjunction with each Big Idea project, the Sun Valley Center for the Arts regularly hosts free family days, events designed for adults and children alike to engage with The Center’s current art exhibition, consider its themes, make crafts and have a good time.
The current Big Idea project, titled “Unraveling: Reimagining the Colonization of the Americas,” deconstructs historical and contemporary perspectives on the multivalent topics of conquest, subjugation, colonization, revolution and war.
In short, “Unraveling” reconsiders topics that may be difficult for some children to fully grasp, but the family day event will help adults and children dissect those concepts in palatable and constructive manners.
“Family days are designed to allow adults and kids to do art projects together,” said Susie Quinn Foster, The Center’s visual art education coordinator. “The event is geared for children ages 3-12, but all ages are welcome and many activities encourage parents to be hands-on assistants to their children.”
This family day, as always, is presented free of charge and no prior registration is required; just swing by The Center between 3-5 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, and have a good time.
