The 11th Annual ARTOPIA!
Celebrating Art through the Ages!
Artopia offers 3 hours of interactive, authentic arts programming for families at no cost. Drawing in more than 300 families each year, Artopia celebrates arts-learning and arts-making through a diverse program of engaging, multi-disciplinary workshops. Every Artopia boasts an arts-infused theme, with this year’s theme being Art through the Ages. Professional artists will take you back in time through a series of historical arts workshops. Children will use their imaginations and curiosity to build their take-home artworks, and also get on stage. Past projects include leaf stamping, spoon maracas, homemade board games, and painting name-based hieroglyphics. Teaching Artists will also facilitate interactive performance workshops in Hip Hop, Ballet, and Improv, followed by performances from Wingspan Arts’ Cabaret Troupe and select Afterschool music and dance classes.
When: Saturday, April 6th, 11:00AM – 2:00PM
Where: PS 334/The Anderson School, 100 West 77th Street, New York, NY 10024
Price: FREE! Suggested donations will benefit Wingspan Arts’ educational programs.
