Artopia: Free Family Arts Festival
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Wingspan Arts’ 12th annual Artopia will be held on Saturday, April 4th, 2020 from 11am – 2pm. The family arts festival is located at PS 334/The Anderson School (100 W. 77th Street) on the Upper West Side. Artopia is free for all. 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 the Art of the Animal Kingdom. Professional artists lead thematic arts workshops, encouraging students to use their imaginations and curiosity to build their take-home artworks. 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. The above activities are completely free to all families, and both children and parents are encouraged to participate. Only three activities are offered with a small fee: Face Painting, Button Making, and the Photo Booth. All three activities can be accessed with the optional $5 Activity Pass purchased upon arrival, or can be accessed individually for $2/each.Venue: The Anderson School / PS 334 POSTPONED
