People We Love Day
Jun 17 @ 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Sometimes the grown ups we love don’t fall into the categories of “Mom” and “Dad”. Celebrate “People We Love Day” at the PlayHouse on May 13, and again on June 17. Join us for a story time and then head over to Real Tools to create something special for someone you love.

Open Art Studio: Pint-sized Printmakers with Chloe McEldowney

Join local artist Chloe McEldowney to make your own monotype prints! Explore mark-making and color while using a wide variety of traditional and non-traditional tools, such as forks, cotton swabs, paintbrushes, fabric, and more.

Chloe is originally from Ohio. In 2015, Chloe moved to Peoria and became a resident artist at the Prairie Center of the Arts, enjoying a year of painting, printmaking, volunteering, and teaching. She currently has a home studio in Peoria, IL, where she creates colorful oil paintings, prints, and drawings that explore light vs. shadow, and opacity vs. transparency, through expressive marks. Her work can be found here: http://chloemceldowney.com/
