Kids who enjoy art and the outdoors can check out the Roving Art Cart, a mobile arts and crafts station that tours local parks and playgrounds, now through August 10.
Every Tuesday through Friday, the fun starts at 10 a.m. and runs until 1 p.m. Kids ages 5 to 12 can do a variety of projects including using recycled materials to make Bicycle Spin Art; creating ArtBots with the help of Carnegie Mellon’s University’s CREATE Lab, and learning about cartooning with the Toonseum.
The Art Cart will be at Beechview Spray Park Thursday, June 28; at Moore Park in Brookline on July 10, at Banksville Park in Banksville on July 19; and at Brookline Community Center in Brookline on July 24.
The Art Cart is rain or shine and parties of 10 or more must register at www.Citiparks.net or call ahead at 412-665-3665 to make reservations.
