October 15 - Community Arts and Culture Day

October 15 (Friday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.)  Community Arts and Culture Day - No School / Lots of Fun!  Area youngsters have the day off because of NEOEA professional development teacher workshops, and the Oberlin Heritage Center is once again partnering with local arts and culture organizations to offer FREE family fun for this day-off-from-school.  Primary school-aged children will enjoy a variety of games and crafts at the Little Red Schoolhouse.  Perfect your ring toss skills, make a silhouette portrait, heft the water buckets, ring the old school bell, and more.  Children must be accompanied by an adult (who may have even more fun!).  Families may also take a guided mini-tour of the first floor of the historic Monroe House at any time from 11:00 to 3:00.

Great activities are also being offered at:
The Frank Lloyd Wright designed Weltzheimer / Johnson House (west on Morgan Street).  Hosted by the Allen Memorial Art Museum.  Architecture building blocks and dream houses.

Firelands Association for the Visual Arts (39 S. Main Street).  Community self-portraits.

Oberlin Public Library (65 S. Main Street).  Book give-away and activities offered by America Reads.
