Children's Artists in Residency Workshops

ArtistsThe Artists in Residence Program, run by the Bank of America-sponsored ParkARTS initiative, allows children ages three to 10 to enjoy crafts like painting, mask and jewelry making, and treasure bottle creations at workshops hosted by local artists from 9 a.m. to noon at parks across the city. Participation and materials are free and young children must be accompanied by an adult. Local workshops will take place on Tuesdays, July 5, 12, 19, and 26, and on August 2 and 9 at Town Field and at the Hunt/Almont Playground in Mattapan. There will also be workshops offered on Fridays, July 8, 15, 22, and 29, and on August 5 and 12 at Dorchester Park.
