The one day event will take place at Studio 1219 in downtown Port Huron on Saturday, May 4, 2013 from 11am-6pm. Enjoy a free day of art activities including painting, drawing, stained glass, jewelry, and pottery. Browse three floors of galleries filled with local art and enjoy a first look at new summer classes. This year’s theme is Remembering the Great Storm of 1913, and will include stormy projects, shipwrecks, and bring awareness to this historical event which swept through the Great Lakes in November, 1913. Inside Studio 1219 at this year’s Hands On Art, you might try to throw a bowl on a potter’s wheel, watch your child partake in a huge collage, or try painting with different watercolor techniques. Chef Jim Kokenyesdi from St. Clair County Community Mental Health will be on site serving up a yummy ‘storm juice’, and his assistant TJ Robinson will be demonstrating fruit and vegetable carvings. You will also meet the friendly staff, teachers, and volunteers of Studio 1219 as you walk through a number of classroom spaces available for you to practice your own works of art. Hands On Art is meant to captivate and inspire all ages, and everyone from the community is encouraged to participate in this special one day event. Studio 1219 infuses the arts into everyday life.
