Summer Art Projects for Children of All Ages

As a part of the DDA’s Old Town Square Art Activation Program, Art for the Heart is a series of at-home projects for children of all ages that will be completed weekly throughout the summer. Join us in Old Town Square every Wednesday, starting in June 2023. 
Each week we will provide a packet that contains an art project, complete with instructions and materials. Participants can take the packet home and spend the week creating. Return your masterpiece the following Wednesday and have it displayed in our Old Town kiosk.
All projects are free to the public. 
More information for this year’s Art for the Heart to come! 
We’re excited to host this art program again this summer!
