ART IN THE PARK

                 

Art in the Park is a long-standing village program with a fun and educational agenda of field trips, crafts, presenters and sport activities for resident children ages 5 - 12. The program initiative is to provide a safe, educational and enjoyable itinerary of activities promoting art and culture. It is staffed by an adult supervisor, assistant supervisor and many dedicated high school volunteers. The program is funded in part through a grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.

The program runs for six weeks on M-W-F in the summer (mid-June through end of July) with each session being approximately 2.5 hours (sometimes a little longer for certain field trips). The program is held at  Pavilion #3 in our village park with an additional large grassy area adjacent and a secondary, indoor location available in case of inclement weather.

Our community has a small fleet of vehicles and drivers that are used to transport the staff and children to local field trips. All associated costs are covered.

The 2022 Art in the Park program begins on Monday, June 13th and runs every M-W-F (except July 4th) Through Friday, July 29th.

This summer will include field trips to the Maltz Museum for the Chagall for Children exhibit, a hands-on and interactive visit to 14 multi-sensory exploration stations; the Children’s Museum Cleveland; MetroParks CanalWay; B.A. Sweetie’s Golfland and more. Scheduled presentations include Art House for a step-by-step canvas painting; an inter-active demonstration by the Leneghan Academy of Irish Dancers; Kulture Kids will offer an inter-active theatre experience; Beck Center for the Arts is bringing back their Drum Experience and more. We will also have a few visits to the Cuyahoga Heights Pool for swimming fun. Please note the children DO NOT need to have a pool pass to attend with us. Additionally we have many new crafts and physical and sport activities planned for our days in the park!
