 The children's center features:

Drum Making Workshop for Kids!
Baba Jubal Harris has been bringing the joy and excitement of music and percussion to children in schools, universities, art centers and festivals for more than 20 years. Children can learn how to make their very own percussion instrument and then join Baba Jubal to try their hand at Afro-Cuban drumming.

Children's Hoop Making Workshop

Angie Iafrate is a certified (hula-)hoop instructor and founder of Mid-Ohio Valley Hoopla, and will be holding a workshop in the child's activity center. Using black irrigation tubing, colorful tapes, and optional shaker/noisemakers like beads on the inside, children will make their very own hula hoops to take home and keep forever. After making the hoops, Angie will lead everyone out to the Arts in Motion venue to do a quick lesson. She might teach a fun trick or two, or maybe just dance with hoops to some groovy beats. You can bring your hoops back later that night for our all-ages hoop jam at 8pm. And remember, this is an activity for girls AND boys to enjoy!
