Each summer, Park Art takes place at George Day Park, located just across from 56 Arbor Street.

Real Art Ways offers free hands-on summertime art workshops for kids. There’s a different project every day, from paper making to painting, pottery and collage.

Along with art classes, the park is home to regular basketball games and tournaments, a fun spray pan for staying cool, jungle gym, and raised bed community gardens.

Park Art concludes with a finale celebration and art exhibit in August.

Classes run Monday through Friday, 1-5 PM.
