The Davis School Arts Foundation’s annual Young @ Art Celebration promises a day of fun for the whole family, with proceeds benefiting arts education in local classrooms.

The event runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, March 25, at the Davis Art Center, 1919 F St. It will offer a diverse array of arts and crafts activities, performances by local school music groups and an exhibit of art by Davis elementary students.

The Young @ Art Celebration raises funds to support the arts in Davis public schools, including elementary school choirs, direct grants for innovative visual and performing arts projects in K-12 classrooms, and site grants for music and art materials.

Last year, the Davis School Arts Foundation generated $44,000 for art programs throughout the school district.

During the celebration, families can enjoy opportunities to dance, hear great music, make art projects inspired by spring, and see fantastic musical and dance performances.

Choruses from Willett, Patwin, and Chávez elementary schools will perform a host of songs, and the Advanced Orchestra from Emerson and Harper junior high schools will delight audiences at noon.

The Momentum Dance Company from Davis High School, under the direction of Pamela Trokanski, will dance select pieces from their repertoire at 2 p.m. Other dance opportunities include learning Latin jazz dance with dance instructor Van Lay.

Sculptors George Grant and Heidi Bekebrede will lead a “clay play” area all day, where children can build up a large city out of clay. Art activities include making watercolor butterflies, flower paintings, fairy seed bags, colorful buttons for your backpack, picture frames and tissue paper flowers.

March 25 also is the last day of the Youth Art Month exhibit, in which art from Davis public elementary school students fills the entire Art Center.

Tickets are $8 per person and are available at the Art Center beginning at 11 a.m. March 25. Children ages 2 and under are free, as are young people who are performing that day.

Food will be available for purchase throughout the event, including pizza donated by Woodstock’s Pizza. Free parking is available in the lot adjacent to the center, but visitors are encouraged to bike or walk.
