Life is what you make it – and so is art! Join Rochester Art Center staff on May 5th from 1 – 4 PM as we explore perception and build our artistic community by collaborating on a new mural for our classroom space. Everyone who participates will be given a two dimensional cube (take our word for it) to decorate and display, and another to decorate and take home to start their own mural with family and friends.

The schedule for Free Family Day is open, you can come anytime between 1 – 4! Free parking is available on the street and in the Civic Center ramp.

ARCHIVE

Join us for our April Free Family Day as we celebrate the arrival of Spring. We can’t predict the weather so we’ve decided to welcome the season by creating flowers that never stop blooming! Using a variety of different papers and wires, families and RAC staff will craft bouquets of roses, lilies and carnations suitable for any season.

The schedule for Free Family Day is open, you can come anytime between 1 – 4! Free parking is available on the street and in the Civic Center ramp.

For this Free Family Day, please bring a canned or boxed food item or a toiletry item to donate to Minnesota FoodShare Campaign Food and Fund Drive. This time of year is extremely important to Channel One and donations made through April 8th help them qualify for extra grant funds from the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches. For a list of most needed items and additional information, please visit https://www.helpingfeedpeople.org/minnesota-foodshare-march-campaign/.
