More family-friendly Artscape events

Round out your weekend with these other events for tykes

July 15, 2011

If you're still looking for more events for toddlers, kids and young adults at this year's Artscape, here are a few other options:

Forty-five minute art workshops at Target Make It at Artscape will teach children to create beaded art and button jewelry. There will also be musical instrument lessons.

Sessions will take place at noon, 2 p.m., 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Children must pre-register for these workshops, and space is limited.

An '80s fashion show at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Charles Street bridge will cater to the family fashionista.

Presented by Salome Vintage and DeBois Textiles, the show will feature models wearing some of the hits and misses from the '80s, including preppy and punk.

Gamescape, an exhibit showcasing locally made video games and game inspired art, will also feature videogame designers and artists from around the world. The exhibit will also showcase classic arcade machines, according to Ben Walsh, the exhibit's curator.

"It is a good place for parents to bring their kids to cool off and have some fun," Walsh said.

Two of the games on display, My Pet Rock and Color Fusion, are always a hit with families, according to Walsh.

"The video game inspired art will definitely appeal to video game enthusiasts and younger audiences alike," said Walsh.

The exhibit will be held in the Pinkard Gallery inside the Bunting Center at Mount Royal Avenue and West Lafayette Avenue.
