Family art classes are scheduled on Wednesdays from 3-5 p.m.
Each Wednesday class will start with “Story Time.” A story introducing the activity will be read by Joanne Whitley from the Gulf Country Library.
Other presentations of general interest are scheduled throughout the summer. “Fins & Feathers” will run through Aug. 16.
The Joe is open on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. ET and from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. ET on Saturdays.
Saturdays provide an opportunity from 1-3 p.m. ET to add your panel to the Blue Tarp Project. This “quilt” will document the impact that Hurricane Michael has had on our community. Bring a photograph, a poem, a symbol that represents your experience “before, during, or after” to be added to the tarp. Also, this will be an opportunity for you to record your “story” about Michael’s impact. We all have a story and sharing leads to healing. Don’t worry if you don’t know what to say, we will have some guidelines to help.
These stories will be assembled into a video for the “One Year After” exhibit to be held at The Joe in October.
The Joe Center for the Arts is located at 201 Reid Ave. in downtown Port St. Joe. Come join the fun.
