Join Sunflower State Dance and Pinot's Palette- Lawrence For Kid's Painting Parties!
My goal this year as director of Sunflower State Dance is to create more opportunities for area children to take part in making art. Whether that be through participating in a full scale ballet production such as our production of Clara and the Land of Sweets: A Nutcracker Story, taking dance classes, through music, or painting. Together with Pinot's Palette-Lawrence, we will be putting on our first ever kid's painting party right here at Sunflower State Dance! We will also be celebrating fall and Halloween with these fun and festive paintings that instructors from Pinot's Palette will guide everyone through to create their very own masterpiece to take home!
