Kids Create at UA Poetry Center

October 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Kids Create is a day of workshops, music, activities, and refreshments just for kids ages 0 to 10 and their parents and guardians. It’s free and open to the public, and is a great way to engage with your child through reading, writing, play, and dance.

Kids Create begins with a set of hour-long creative writing workshops. Three age-appropriate workshops are offered simultaneously, serving children aged 0 through 10. Adults may select the workshop that works best for their child. Workshops are designed to be fun and playful. Arrive a little before 10:00am, when workshops start, to register! After the workshops, there will be a breakfast concert featuring healthy food, coffee, and live local music that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike. Drop-in writing activities, games, and typewriters are scattered throughout the library and available for use until the library closes.

This month’s concert will be performed by the Gabrielle Pietrangelo Trio. Founded in 2016, the Trio features Ben DeGain on vibraphone, Thoger Tetens Lund on stand-up bass and Gabrielle Pietrangelo on 4-string guitar & vocals. They perform in the Tucson area for private parties and events, playing nostalgic standards from the 1930’s & 40’s.

Kids Create is not a drop-off program. All children must be supervised by a parent, guardian, or accompanying adult at all times.
