Kids Battle of the Brushes 2019
The Macomb Arts Center is looking for young artists in grades 1-8 to participate in the premiere Kids Battle of the Brushes (K-BoB!). This fun, fast-paint, friendly competition will take place 2:00-4:00pm, Sunday, October 27 at the MAC, 25 East Side Square in Macomb. Working with acrylic paint, each artist will create a painting in 20 minutes or less! Application deadline is Monday, October 21. Space is limited!
Rising Stars is a comprehensive three week theatre experience focused on developing all aspects (script, set, costumes, music, etc.) of a creative, original stage production. Everyone is a star at Rising Stars, on stage or off, because each person’s light is needed for our final production to succeed. No experience needed! We welcome kids who like to act, sing, play music, write stories, write songs, build things, draw, paint, create things, or just have fun and help out!
