The Richmond Art Center’s Fall Family Day will flutter into its Barrett Avenue courtyard with a cornucopia of festive fun Sat., Oct. 7 from 12-3 p.m. The event is free-admission and open to kids of all ages and their grown-ups, per the RAC.

Fall Family Day is a time for the local community to get a taste of the RAC’s offerings, while also celebrating Indigenous Peoples’ Day through artmaking, according to the center. Highlights of the early fall day will include a community mural with Luis Garcia; a powwow reading corner; drop-in art making stations; vendors; games and music by DJ Freddie of Hotmixx Entertainment.

Artists and activities featured that day will include printing with Andrés Cisneros-Galindo; leaf activity with Tiffany Conway; printing with Alice Rice; Anne Wolf and Lisa Levine’s ENOUGH stitch n’ bitch and ENOUGH photo portrait sessions; Louie Gong coloring pages; and a gallery search and find.

The RAC courtyard is located at 2540 Barrett Ave. in Richmond. RSVPs for the event are not necessary. Questions? Contact the RAC at 510-620-6772 or [email protected] or click here.
