“Adults on the Move” offers fun and educational Arts and Culture experiences from 3pm to 5pm every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. What's exciting is this is truly a ‘drop-in’ program! Use it once; once a week; or ongoing (every T/W/Th) for months. A great option for tourists visiting, as well as local adults wanting new experiences or stopping by while in the cultural district.

Programs are led by local artists, with rotating guest instructor days: i.e. Zumba teacher, mosaic stained glass, RCA resident artist demo… you name it – we will probably have it! Activities rotate, this way everyone experiences all that is offered for that day.  Experience Inspirational Walks to galleries and nearby ecological areas such as the Rotary Marshes.
