Kids (and adults) are welcome to participate in making a community piece that culminates in an installation piece that will be put on display in the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Each participant creates a mixed media work on a randomly selected puzzle piece that will become part of a dynamic sculptural form. Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille will join in the fun!
Kids (and adults) will also have the opportunity to make custom, painted t-shirts to commemorate their day at the Alexandria Festival of the Arts!
