Family Friendly Events at Paradise Center for the Arts
With public health officials noting that outdoor gatherings are safer, the Paradise is embracing the outdoors. With help from a Community Pride Grant from the Faribault Foundation, the Paradise will host Art in the Park Wednesday July 22 and August 19 at 10:30am. Art in the Park will be held in Faribault’s Central Park with a hands-on art activity for children and families that takes place at 10:30am, followed by a story time.
Staff will lead the story time portion of the program, with Paradise Center for the Arts Director Heidi Nelson reading a story aloud and other staff/volunteers acting it out. Families are asked to follow social distancing guidelines and masks are strongly recommended.
The July 22 visual arts activity will be sidewalk chalk drawing. The sidewalk chalk drawings will be judged by local artists, awards will be announced after Story time.
This activity is made possible by a Faribault Foundation Community Pride grant which covers the cost of the art supplies, hand sanitizer/disinfectant, and staff time. The city of Faribault is generously granting the Paradise use of the Central Park band shell.
