The Cabarrus Arts Council’s Family Days feature fun and creative activities for children in The Galleries and Davis Theatre and opportunities for anyone to visit The Galleries on a weekend. Each Family Day will be different and may include creative art projects in The Galleries, a performance or movie in the Davis Theatre and even activities on the front lawn of the Cabarrus County Historic Courthouse.

Children also will be able to do activities related to the current exhibition, including the “I Spy” art work scavenger hunt, “Art Box” craft projects and “Think About It” guided questionnaires.
