Winter Party with Paints and Poems

December 21, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join local Teaching Artists Tracy Rittmueller, Kelly Meyer, Antionette Lee, and 9 local poetry ambassadors from diverse cultures and backgrounds to celebrate the one thing we all share in common—Minnesota Winter! Registration required to receive free paints, canvases and painting guidance. Create a work of art while listening to a multi-cultural selection of poems and songs. No experience is needed to paint, to participate in making a collaborative communal poem, or to access the open mic. Buddy King will provide drumming and Jim Read will type spontaneous poems on themes chosen by attendees. Sensory friendly spaces will offer hospitality to people who experience overwhelm. The Yes Network is providing kids’ snacks and drinks, and Lyricality is offering teas from 4 continents.
Free and open to adults and families with children 8+
Registration required to paint.
Paint in the Bremer Room (sensory friendly) or Mississippi Room.
Register today to reserve your canvas. Two sessions available starting at 4:00pm and 6:00pm.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Central MN Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund
