Help us spread the word about our Community Art Studio and the Earth Day Parade!

Earth Day Community Art Studio & Workshop Schedule

It takes a whole village — and then some — to put together an Earth Day Parade and Community Picnic. This years’ theme is “Global Warming: The Tipping Point”. If you want to plan, brainstorm, organize, fundraise, give money and/or supplies, sculpt, sew, papier-mâché, staple, build, paint, cook food, usher, clean up, sing songs, play music, or dance please join us! Contact our Volunteer Coordinator: Robin Nance at or 231-947-3096


Help build the puppets for the parade! Workshops are low-cost to free and open to the public. For a month of weekends, beginning March 24th through Earth Day, April 21st, the Art Center of Traverse City will be transormed into a giant studio where Little Artshram and Rhythmic Adventures and volunteers create the Earth Day Parade. Workshop times: Fridays 5-9 PM, Sat. 12-5 PM, Sun. 12-5 PM.

We will be posting more information about the weekend workshops on this blog–so check back!

Our Community Art Studio is held at the ArtCenter on the corner of 11th and Elmwood St. in Traverse City. For help with directions, call the ArtCenter at 941-9488
