Dances With Cyclops – Spring has sprung! As seedlings begin to sprout, a new life form will also be born at NLArts on Friday APRIL 10.

We will dream up and create our very own cyclopses – think one eyed, two headed, ten armed, or six legged creatures with super powers!

First we’ll sketch out these imaginative creatures on paper. Then we will play fun movement and dance games that involve mirroring, teamwork, simple acrobatics, and silly costume and prop play in order to prepare for and create our very own Cyclops Recital.

By the end of the workshop, our cyclops creations will have put on a lovely show…maybe they’ll even have a little dance party!

Plus Pizza!

Participants should wear clothes that are appropriate for getting messy
and having a good time.

New Director at NLArts

NLArts is happy to welcome Katrina Mansfield (Miss Kat) as our new Executive Director.

Katrina has been advocating for the neighborhood and volunteering at children’s events during her twenty-year residency in Northern Liberties. Her background is in fine arts and commercial graphics.

“My first priority is to keep NLArts running smoothly during this transition.” says Mansfield, “Monika has done a great job of establishing the organization, and has a wonderful rapport with our parents. I’m glad that she is staying on as Secretary.” Monika Kreidie along with a group of parents started NLArts back in 2006 as a means for kids to get a sense of connection to their neighborhood and the city through the arts.

NLArts will hold its First Friday Kids’ Workshop series through December. This two and a half our craft event is open to children 5 through 12.

NLArts popular Summer Camp is held during the last three weeks in August.
