‘The Art Market’ pop-up arts and crafts event for kids comes to James Lee Park south of Carson City this Friday | Carson City Nevada News

On Fridays, The Art Market hosts a pop-up arts and crafts event for kids in the Carson City area south of Carson City in Douglas County.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to noon at James Lee Memorial Park in the Indian Hills area of ​​Carson City in Douglas County, followed by many more similar events in the region in the fall from Gardnerville to Tahoe and everywhere in between.

“Everyone is welcome to come and experience art and creativity outside as we celebrate fall and all the things we love about this magical season,” said organizer Jessica Johnsen. “Adults are welcome to create with or alongside your little ones. No age restrictions. If you want to create outdoor art, come with us!

The event includes mixed media paper, fabric, felt, foam and other materials that serve as the foundation for any art project.

“Art carts will be filled with all kinds of materials that can be used to create a one-of-a-kind piece of art,” Johnsen said. “Paints, brushes, water cups, collected nature objects, etc. will all be provided on the tables for use. Cloths, wood pieces, fall inspired and other unique finds are also available if you want to use them as a base for your project and are priced separately.”

The cost for the event is $15, which can be paid in cash or with Venmo.

The pop-up Art Market offers:
— Free-style creation with materials from The Art Market
— Development of fine and gross motor skills
– Creativity challenges! Creativity is essential for the arts, for new inventions and for human expression.
— Outdoor adventure, play & socialization
— Free Montessori-style play activities and toys
— One of our “Little Stands” (weather dependent) for kids to take part in dramatic play.
— Rabbit handling and petting pen
— Experience different parks and locations in our region!
— Most importantly, community bonding.

Take Home Cotton Candy Clouds Little Craft Kits will also be available in every market.

Drinks and treats will be available for purchase. Participants can earn “Cotton Candy Clouds Bucks” every time they visit the market.

“These can be used to purchase beverages and treats in a future market,” says Johnsen. “I love the free style of The Art Market this fall and can’t wait to see what creations are made.”

The park is located at 3394 James Lee Park Rd, Carson City
