Art at City Park
Outdoor Art Activities in Belfast’s City Park
Visitors of any age can drop by the Waterfall Arts station and pick up a materials kit for a different activity every week. Find us along the road near the tennis courts, or at the gazebo. Materials have been disinfected and items borrowed and returned are not re-used.
Free of cost, donations welcomed.
***In the event of rain on a given Wednesday morning, you can find Bridget for a guided lesson on Facebook Live at 11am that day instead, here!
Public health and your personal safety is our top priority.
All in-person Waterfall Arts programs in the summer of 2020 will be held outdoors and physically-distanced. If materials are provided for any program, they will be prepared at least two days in advance and packaged in individual materials kits for each participant. For programs that take pre-registrations online, students will receive advance notice of any materials they are encouraged to bring to the program, for their own use. All programs are being designed such that participants can maintain a distance of at least 6 feet from one another and from the teacher, at all times – whether seated or in movement. *Masks are required (particularly during times of instruction and discussion), for all in-person Waterfall Arts programs.
Participants will be responsible for bringing their own water and can spread out to seek shade as needed. Porta-potties or public restrooms are located near this location. When used, public tables and chairs will be wiped down and sanitized before and after the run of the program.
