Saturday, July 1st at 2:30 p.m. in the Community Room

Kick off the summer at this fun event. Professional artist Rashmi Talpade will introduce REPRESENT: What Makes You Special?, our latest community art project for families of all ages.

Then Anthony DePoto of innerAct Theatre will conduct an improvisation workshop that promotes team building, communication, and helping folks of all ages find what makes them special. Anthony uses improvisational theatre exercises and games to help children, adults, and families better communicate and work together. All games are fun, exciting, and collaborative.

All ages welcome, but the improv activities are best suited to ages 5 and up. Please register each improv participant individually.


REPRESENT: What Makes You Special? Community Art Project

REPRESENT: A Community Art Project logoShare the uniqueness of yourself and your loved ones in our latest community art project. Under the guidance of professional artist Rashmi Talpade, families of all types are invited to create a one-of-a-kind collage-style postcard using a combination of images and text representing themselves. Not the artistic type? Don’t worry - Rashmi will help channel your creativity. All ages welcome - from great-grandparents to teens to preschoolers. Take-home packets are available for those who cannot attend in person. At the end of the summer, all submissions will become part of an exhibition celebrating the families of our community.
