Art is everywhere. And to prove that, folks from all corners of the Richmond community are coming together to hold an ultra-fun and educational Art in March Extravaganza at DeJean Middle School on Saturday, March 16.
This third annual event, free and open to the community, celebrates a month dedicated to art by inviting local organizations, government agencies and businesses to set up hands-on art stations for the educational benefit of local youth. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., youth and their families can spend time visiting a variety of stations, including art and crafts, book making, karaoke, dancing and mural painting. Science-focused art will be part of the mix, as the Chevron Richmond-sponsored Mobile Fab Lab, which will enable community youth to work on fun maker’s projects while learning principals about science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM.
Other local agencies and organizations invited to host stations at Art in March this year are the Richmond police and fire departments, the mayor’s office, city council, and local organizations such as the RYSE Center and East Bay Center for Performing Arts.
