Banfill invites community members and their families to the center to spend time together exploring and learning about their creative sides.

Members of the Children’s Book Illustrators Guild will conduct free hands-on mini art workshops geared toward children and their families. Learn how to create sidewalk art, design a storybook, draw monsters, animals and more.

“It’s a good chance to work with real artists,” said Bethany Whitehead, executive director of Banfill-Locke.

The popular art treasure hunt returns as well. Prizes will be awarded. Free, light refreshments will be served.

Additional opportunities to explore art will be offered to young children, ranging from structured activities to painting with water colors.

Art projects will be available inside and out of the center.

Whitehead invites the public to participate in the art event and to take a stroll in Manomin County Park, where Banfill-Locke is located.

“Come and do an arts activity with family,” she said.

All ages are welcome.

Banfill-Locke is located at 6666 East River Road in Fridley.
