Family Fun Day

It’s springtime in the Bluegrass and a great time to explore, experiment, and get creative inside and out! Join the Living Arts & Science Center’s teachers, staff and special guests for a free day of hands-on arts, science and music activities on April 25, from 10 am to 3 pm at the LASC.

The event is free and open to the public and offers many new activities as well as annual events. All activities are hands-on and will take place indoors and out!
Family Fun Day will include interactive demonstrations by Joe Allred of the Capoeira Cultural Center in Lexington. Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form that begin over 400 years ago. The beautiful, choreographed, and extremely strenuous physical movements are performed to music and drumming and are thrilling to watch.
In addition, children and adults can participate in numerous art and science activities such as creating and flying kites, collaborating on the annual painting of the “art car”, painting a mural in the parking lot, testing out science experiments, and much more!

Family Fun Day will also present the interactive exhibits, Cutting Edge, a fiber art show showcasing the work of seven Kentucky Women artists in the Art Gallery, and the Invisible Worlds exhibit in the Discovery Room.

Visitors can also enjoy The Living Arts & Science Center’s new pondless waterfall, and the native Kentucky plants that are being added to the outdoor environment.

Events are free and open to the public.

Snacks and refreshments are available for purchase.
