Westport Center for Arts offers collaborative kids’ workshops

kids-team-up-for-artKids can attend free art workshops this fall at several local libraries.

Westport Center for the Arts’ Kids Team Up for Art begins its fall session at the Plaza, Southeast, North-East, Waldo and Bluford branches of the Kansas City Public Library in October.

Participants work collaboratively to create one large project using common art supplies and recycled and “found” materials. In the past, workshop groups have constructed mosaics, towering sculptures, collage self-portraits and custom footwear.

Workshops are from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at:

  • Plaza Branch, 4801 Main Street, on Oct. 11, Nov. 8 and Dec. 6
  • Southeast Branch, 6242 Swope Parkway, on Oct. 18, Nov. 15 and Dec. 20

  • Lucille H. Bluford Branch, 3050 Prospect, on Nov. 22 and Dec. 13

Parents and guardians of children 8-years-old and younger are asked to attend the workshop. All participants are encouraged to wear clothing suitable for working with paint, glue, clay and other hands-on materials.
