March is National Youth Art Month! The City of Kent, Kent School District (KSD), Kent Downtown Partnership and downtown businesses join forces to bring you Spring into Art 2009! Spring into Art provides children of KSD an opportunity to have their artwork displayed around town. The children are very proud! Also, the event provides awareness to children about the arts.
Renaissance Yarns is excited to host the artwork of 3rd & 6th graders of Springbrook Elementary. The artwork will be on display through Sunday, March 15th. On Friday, March 13th, from 5 - 8 PM, children will have the opportunity to learn how to finger knit. Plan on this mini class to start on the hour and half hour and go for about 15 - 20 minutes. The cost is FREE to children ages 7 - 12. Light refreshments will be available. Additionally, there are many activities that will be available for children to participate in, including candle making, face painting, cookie decorating and so much more!

Spring into Art is a great family and community event. Now more than ever it is important to get involved in and support your local community. This event can also be used as a tool to model your community support to your family. No school age children? That’s OK. Your community needs your support! I hope to see all of you throughout the weekend!
