Take a family trip to the Quinlan
Placeholder Image

The Quinlan Visual Arts Center will have its first Family Day from 1-4 p.m. Saturday, May 11, at 514 Green St. NE in Gainesville.

Packed with art activities for all ages, the free event will include a self-guided art scavenger hunt, drawing from a live model or the chance to make your own funny "wrong-handed" family portrait.

In the ceramics studio, participants have a chance get their hands dirty and make one-of-a-kind pottery owls during live wheel demonstrations. A special Raku firing will be outside.

Artist Fox Gradin will present "Art of the Waters" Art Camp 2013 projects and The Magical Mr. McClure will make balloon art.

The center’s galleries will be open to public for viewing throughout the event.
