Arts on the Green, Gaithersburg’s premier center for the performing and visual arts, recently launched a new initiative that encourages children and families to explore the world around them through programs in music, theater, movement and the visual arts.
Just for Families provides performing and visual arts programs for families with young kids. From painting workshops to theater productions and concerts, Arts on the Green offers experiences for parents and children to enjoy the arts together at their two facilities, Arts Barn and Kentlands Mansion.
Next in the line-up is Bop Goes the Weasel this Saturday, October 4, 11am – 12pm. The jazz-for-kids performance is high-energy, interactive, and encourages young listeners to clap, snap, and have fun as Christiana Drapkin and her quartet introduce children to jazz greats like Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, and Charlie Parker. It’s recommended for children in pre-K to grade 5, and tickets are $12/adult, $8/child. Call 301-258-6394 to reserve yours.
The family programing also includes ongoing series like Songs & Stories, a preschool program held the first and third Thursday of each month. Workshops, concerts, magic shows, and theater are also featured in the Just for Families series. You can view the complete schedule for dates and details.
Arts on the Green venues, Arts Barn and Kentlands Mansion, are located in the heart of the Kentlands at 311 and 320 Kent Square Road in Gaitherburg, MD. Follow them on Facebook to stay updated on events and programs.
