The Macon County Arts Council hosted another Art in the Park this week, although when the venue was changed for rain, a more accurate name would have been “Art indoors at the Macon County Fairgrounds.”
“I was worried we’d lose a lot when we had to come here, since we’re usually at Key Park,” said MCAC President Nancy Doss. “But we only lost about thirty. We have over 200 kids here.”
The children were each signed up for two of nearly a dozen different courses; they spent half the morning in one, stopped for a cookie break, and spent the other half of the morning in the other. The course was for Monday and Tuesday mornings, so the second day of workshops, students were refining and finishing projects begun on the first day.
Classes included weaving, scrapbooking, silk painting, shirt painting, wire and wood, sculpting, musical dance, and sock puppet-making, to name a few. To close out the day on Tuesday, there was a time for showcasing finished projects, as well as a sock puppet performance and musical skit recital.
