Arts: Outback Artspace opens in St. Johnsbury

Published September 1, 2013 at 4:00 a.m.

The annual Colors of the Kingdom Festival sweeps through St. Johnsbury on September 21 with a parade, craft fair and street entertainment. But there's even more to celebrate this year: the grand opening of Outback Artspace. Owned and operated by Catamount Arts, the building is the catalyst for "an ambitious new arts education program focused on children in grades K through 8," writes arts education coordinator Anne Campbell. After school, on weekends and during school vacations the space will offer classes in visual art, crafts, music, dance, theater, media and creative writing. Want in on the arts action? Conga drumming, storytelling and family weaving workshops are on the fall schedule.

Outback Artspace: Grand opening on Saturday, September 21, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., at 107 Eastern Avenue in St. Johnsbury. Visit catamountarts.org for more information.
