Free arts and crafts for kids in Macon

Elementary school-aged children and their families are invited to a free ARTSaturday arts and crafts workshop from 10 a.m. to noon Oct. 13 in the children’s area of the Macon County Public Library.  

Children will create take-home projects made from natural materials. Keyboardist Lionel Caynon provides live music. There’s no pre-registration. Children should wear play clothes and come for any part of the session. Adults must stay and work with their younger children. The Arts Council presents ARTSaturday workshops at the library the second Saturday of each month. The series is supported by the Grassroots Arts Program of the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
