KIDS’ ART FREE-FOR-ALL

Just in time to enjoy the sunshine, the Partnership for Arts, Culture and Education brings the Kennedy Center Imagination Celebration to downtown Dallas’ Artist Square. The celebration-in its 12th year-is a jubilee of ongoing events that encourage children’s free-flowing creativity through art.

The theme this year is “Under the Sea,” which will serve as a jumping-off point for kids to immerse themselves in self-expression. Performances, workshops and participatory activities give kids a chance not only to observe art, but also to create and interact with it themselves. On-stage events include Kid Cloggers dance team, the St. Michael’s Choir, Filipino dancers, percussionist Jamal Mohamed and storyteller Jeanie Perkins.

In addition to tried-and-true face painting, the one-day festival boasts hands-on activities like loom weaving, hat making, easel art and fish printing. Visitors also can help muralist Emmanuel Gillespie finish a sidewalk chalk sea creature. As Sebastian the crab from The Little Mermaid sings: “Everything’s better down where it’s wetter, just wait and see.”

11 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday, April 12; Artist Square (corner of Leonard and Flora streets near The Mort). -EB
