Open Arts Day, featuring Kids Really Rock, is a free, family-friendly, drop-in open house with visual and performing arts workshops, kid friendly activities, and live music by some of Boston’s top bands for families and kids.
Artists of all ages and abilities can experiment with clay (hand building and pottery wheel), printmaking, mixed-media and other art activities for the whole family.
Watertown Children’s Theatre will announce their 2017-18 season and host fun theatre-based activities with music and movement. Resident Theatre Company, New Rep will showcase their exciting theatre programming for the coming year.
The event will once again feature The Steamroller Printing Project where professional printmakers ink up carved plates then roll over them with an industrial steamroller from the Watertown DPW yard to create relief print masterpieces!
On the Kids Really Rock stage, all-day music by some of Boston’s top bands for families and kids – Karen K & the Jitterbugs, Ben Rudnick and Friends and Vanessa Trien and the Jumping Monkeys. Event goers of all ages can also take a trip through the Percussion Playground, a special hands-on rhythm section, where kids and grown-ups can explore the sounds of various percussion instruments.
“All We Need Is Love” will be the theme of the day so come one, come all, and join us in celebrating this wonderful FREE event for the community.
