The River Arts Alliance is proud to present the 11th annual Family Art Day to be held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 1, at the Jaycee Pavilion on East Lake Winona.
The popular event allows participants of abilities to try their hand at a variety of art forms.
The event is free and open to all ages.
New this year, the River Arts Alliance is providing a free “art bus” to the event in coordination with Winona Transit Service. The bus will pick up from three locations: East Recreation Center, 210 Zumbro Street; the Winona Public Library, 151 West Fifth Street; and at the corner of Fifth and Pelzer streets between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Kids must have an adult present to ride. There will be art-making activities available on the bus.
