Children’s Librarians from Portland Public Library will read stories or do storytelling at Congress Square. Ages 0-5.
Interactive art games including…
- Spin O’Clock: Interact with the performance by spinning a colorful wheel to bring the performers to life and determine their next move. Abbeth Russell, Myles Bullen and John “Sighless” Supinski will juggle, create live art, play music and improvise poetry throughout this dynamic spectacle. The fate of the performance lies in the hands of Spin O’Clock.
- Art Ball: Art ball is a game where children and the audience get to throw paint balls at artists and paint a giant mural during the process. Art ball will be run by William Hessian and Myles Bullen
- Ladder Person Slot Machine: A giant sculpture that can be interacted with like a slot machine to win art prizes
- Art Bell Ringer: A ball throwing game where people try to throw balls into a work of art. Ring the bell, win art.
The Hidden Ladder Collective is a rapidly growing tidal wave of creative energy based out of Portland, Maine. In this collective, painters are musicians are filmmakers are writers are photographers are activists are sculptors. The boundaries between mediums have been shattered. We are all creators. We are buskers, inventors, collaborators, activists, strategists, and performers. We are accountable to art. We are resourceful. We make art out of anything and everything. Boredom is unacceptable.
This class is fun for the whole gang! With a focus on strengthening family bonds, we’ll sing, dance, laugh and play while learning yoga basics together. What a fun way to spend time together as a family and meet new friends. We encourage parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles to join, too! No prior experience necessary, as poses can be adapted for yogis of all ages and abilities. Bring a yoga mat if you have one and a water bottle.
Maine Yoga Kids started in 2013 with the mission of making the joy of yoga accessible and affordable for children and their families in Maine. We are not a yoga studio; rather, we collaborate with schools and community centers to make yoga available in a variety of settings. We offer group classes, private instruction and birthday parties. Our classes are playful and open to all ages and abilities, with no prior yoga experience necessary.
