Don’t miss an opportunity to bring out your inner artist! Each Saturday during the Art Stroll, Perennial will be on-site from 12-4 p.m., leading DIY craft workshops for anyone to participate in (free of charge)! Established in 2011, Perennial is a St. Louis non-profit dedicated to creative reuse — the process of artistically transforming discarded goods into objects of worth. They turn trash in to amazing items and teach the community to do the same!
Join the creative folks of Perennial to craft magnetic art using upcycled materials! Tables will be set up along the sidewalk on McPherson. Stop by anytime to start creating. (Please note: seating is first-come, first serve).
