Talk with instructors, try a class and learn about upcoming programs and special events

Indy Parks & Recreation’s Garfield Park Arts Center (GPAC) will host an open house from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday August 28, 2010. Swing by to experience all the GPAC has to offer! This is your chance to sample workshops led by talented Teaching Artists representing many mediums including clay, drawing, painting, jewelry-making, dance and more. Those interested may enroll in a class on-site. Various clubs and other groups of arts enthusiasts will also be sharing their passions and encouraging you to get involved.

NEW classes this fall include creative drama for preschool and youth taught by Lora Langston. Music instruction will be offered by Ana Garcia in woodwinds, piano and voice. Create your own loveable monster in our Stitch ‘n Stuff workshop for youth. Learn the basics of jewelry making with Marti Icenogle just in time to join our Jewelry Open Studio. This is just a sample of the many new offerings this fall at the GPAC!

While you are visiting, enjoy the GPAC’s gallery spaces which will be exhibiting the National Arts Program ® featuring work in a wide variety of media by City of Indianapolis employees, retirees and their families.

With expanded hours, free hands-on family arts activities every weekend, a rotating schedule of exhibits and internationally-themed special events, the GPAC is a unique space, and getting better all the time. Take this opportunity to sample and enroll in a class then share your thoughts with staff as to how the GPAC could be even better.
