Art projects are so much fun for children to enjoy at home and with friends. They are also a great way to help kids doing something other than play video games, watch TV and stare at their phones for hours on end. Guess What? KID smART’s family-friendly block party is coming to YOUR neighborhood with Art Jam 2021!
Art Jam 2021 Details
Families will get the opportunity to create works of art that blend drama, music, creative writing, and visual art with math, science, social studies, and English language arts. “If you will be in New Orleans on May 8th and want to pick up a ready-to-go ART JAM Kit with all of the supplies needed for your family’s ART JAM, you’ve come to the right place!” Art Jam 2021 kits are free, but there is a limited supply so register soon – HERE.
