Art with the Family at the Firehouse
The November meeting of the Vicksburg Art Association is scheduled for
Tuesday, November 14th, 2006, at 7:30 pm
in the historic Old Constitution Firehouse on the corner of Main and Openwood in Downtown Vicksburg.
The Vicksburg Art Association will feature a unique program, Art with the Family on November 14th. Hands-on art projects that all members of a family, from grandparents to small children, can participate in and enjoy, will be presented. Local art teachers from the Vicksburg Warren school district, Nancy Mitchell (Warren Central High School), Joyce Brown (Vicksburg High School), Kathy Gibson (Vicksburg High School) and Lisa Grant (Vicksburg Intermediate School) will explore the use of different mediums and dimensions to involve each age group. As recent studies have shown, families, children especially, must pull away from television, computer and video games to remain physically healthy and mentally challenged. Through art and group projects, the family can find a vehicle for fostering creativity, expression, thought, communication, laughter, and bonds.
There is no charge and the public is encouraged to attend. For additional information, call or e-mail Kilby Whitney (firstname.lastname@example.org or 601-218-2030).
