The Commemorate Committee and Art XO Studio are sponsoring four FREE community painting workshops, where artists will learn and be inspired to make artwork that celebrates Juneteenth. Art work will be stored at Art XO until the event, and then beautifully displayed at the Juneteenth celebration, which takes places Saturday, June 18th from 2:00pm-6:00pm outside Main Street School. The week after the event, artists can pick up their art pieces from outside the art studio.

*Children under the age of 9 must be accompanied by a caregiver.
