ASC Family FunDay to feature painting with Tim Jacob


The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas will host its free monthly Family FunDay from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday.

Arkansas painter, Tim Jacob, will teach an acrylic painting lesson and participants of all ages will be able to follow Jacob step-by-step to complete a Delta landscape scene. Visitors are also invited to the Tinkering Studio to construct small paper lanterns that use LED technology and a new exhibit from the Arkansas Discovery Network, “Nanotechnology: What’s the Big Deal?” will also be open. All activities are free.

ASC’s second Saturday Family FunDay program provides monthly hands-on arts and science activities. Activities complement current art or science exhibitions. Activities are free and led by visiting artists, local art educators, and ASC staff. People of all ages are encouraged to attend. Second Saturday Family FunDay programming is made possible in part by a grant from the Pine Bluff Area Community Foundation, an affiliate office of the Arkansas Community Foundation, Inc.

The Arts & Science Center, located at 701 S. Main St., is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m., and closed on Sunday and Monday. Gallery admission is free.

Support for the center is provided in part by the Arkansas Arts Council, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Hands-on science exhibitions are offered through ASC’s partnership with Arkansas Discovery Network, a consortium of museums in Arkansas funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation.
