Artz Daze kicks off on Friday for adults, kids

If you are looking for a chance to get out of your office on Friday and enjoy some artistic expression, the Columbus Area Arts Council has a program just for you.

Geri Handley, spokeswoman for the arts council, says that the season’s first Artz Daze will kick off on Friday.

“It is a kind of drop-in activity, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the street in front of The Commons,” Handley said. “It is for adults and for children. People of all ages. We have instructors who will do different projects.”

Participants on Friday will be working with Brown County weaver Kris Gustin, Handley said.

“She has been a weaver for a very long time and her specialty is that she uses recycled materials,” Handley said. ‘She gets a lot of her yarns from mills that they would just throw away, normally. And then she makes wonderful things.”
