Art Spark Texas and the McBeth Recreation Center are partnering once again for our Annual Art in the Park Festival! We are excited to provide this Virtual festival in 2021, until we can all gather safely again.
We are dedicating this year's virtual Art in the Park to Michal Anne Lord, the founder of Art in the Park, as well as the Adapted Recreation program at Austin Parks and Recreation, which became McBeth Recreation Center, and the launch of Very Special Arts Texas, which ultimately became Art Spark Texas. She was and is a true advocate for inclusion, and we are pleased to honor her dedication to breaking barriers to the arts for all Texas children and adults with disabilities. Please take a moment to watch this intro video to hear more about her work for Texas children!
Check out this great list of videos of virtual activities in Art, Music and Dance. Mix and match to create the best experience for your students. The Video of the Day will be posted on our social media each morning at 8:30 am from April 8-22. 2021, so don't forget to follow us on FB or IG @ArtSparkTx
On Thursday, April 22nd, watch for a fun Closing Day live musical event!
