This fun class designed  to share the traditional art of Venezuelan piñata making, taught by Venezuelan artists,  will bring this cultural Venezuelan party tradition to New Hampshire.  This class is designed for families of all ages to take together to create one piñata per family.  As a beginner class, within the two sessions each family will create one shaped piñata decorated with flourishes of crepe paper and filled with confetti, complete with a rope and pulley.  Participants can choose to create a simple ball-shaped piñata or one more complexly shaped.  Add personalized fun to your next family party while learning the techniques to make these in the future, as this is sure to be a new party tradition for your family!

Experience making music with your children in this class designed for young children and their caregivers together.  Music will come to life as everyone sings, dances, drums and claps for fun, experimenting with voices, instruments and movement.  We have missed this staple of LAC programming, put on hold by the pandemic, and we are so excited to be able to bring it back this summer under the event tent on the side lawn. There will be marks on the ground to help families safely socially distance. 

*Please bring a mask to wear for any time you are not able to safely distance from other participants (for any participants old enough to wear one).  Instruments will be set out for families limiting shared materials, and will be sanitized between sessions.  Space will be limited to six families, families can have up to three children and two adults.  Because of limited spots available, preregistration/reservation for each session is required.
