SEEDArts is offering a public art workshop for youth (fifth grade and up) to create a glass tile mosaic for a the entrance of the new Rainier Vista Boys & Girls Club on Martin Luther King Jr. Way South. Workshops will meet on Thursdays from 4:30 – 5:15 (seventh grade and up) and 5:15 – 6:15 (fifth and sixth grade) until June 4. For information, contact Abbey Norris, Public Art Manager, (206) 760-4289.
SEEDarts is hosting the South Seattle Solstice: Festival of Lights at 4:30 pm on December 21. Participants, carrying lit luminaria, will walk from the Rainier Valley Cultural Center in Columbia City to Hillman City, with an event at the end of the walk to “celebrate community on the darkest day of the year, with light, music and refreshments.”
Don’t have a lantern to carry? Fear not. This Saturday is a free lantern-making workshop to prepare for the solstice event. Bring a large tin can that has been filled with water and frozen solid. (Rumor has it, it’s going to be cold this weekend. The freezing part might be easy.) The workshop is open to all ages, and it’s from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm at the Rainier Valley Cultural Center, 3515 South Alaska Street.
For more information about this event, contact Abbey Norris, Public Art Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org, (206) 760-4289.
