Get into the spirit of the Drake Relays and help us replicate their famous street painting event! Every year, students at Drake University paint the street (and each other) in an afternoon event leading up to the world-famous Relays.
We’ll be transforming the North Side Library’s sidewalk with your fun designs! We’ll provide supplies, and you’ll bring the ideas and creativity. Consider coming in painting clothes just in case this gets a little messy!
Taiko is an ancient Japanese form of percussion. The artform consists of people using large drums of varying sizes and perform in festivals and musical performances around the world. Learn about the different styles of Taiko drumming and how and where the drums are used in Japan and the U.S. You may even get a chance to play the drums during this interactive, educational event for all ages!
