Upcoming Classes & Workshops

Join us at the Kimball Art Center every 
Thursday afternoon from 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. 

This is a free program that brings art to the community and inspires young children to express their creativity. Volunteers will read a book each week and lead tots in an art project themed around the story. This program is geared toward ages 3 - 5 years old but kids that are outside of that age group are welcome to participate. Parents are required to stay with their tots during the reading and art project.
