Dallas ISD schools take a spring break from classes next week, and the city, through its Office of Cultural Affairs, offers an afternoon’s worth of activities to keep idle student hands from signing up with the devil’s workshop.

The city’s Community Artists Program sets up shop from 1-5 p.m., March 15, at the Bath House Cultural Center. They’ll work in conjunction with Shared FUEL and its ongoing photographic exhibit, Trashing Our Treasure, at the Bath House to engage students in a game of found-object art as part of the Bath House’s Green Day.

Kids who participate in found-object art take litter from the White Rock Lake area and turn the debris into works of art. Sounds pretty logical.

Other activities include nature walks, gallery discussions with artists who contributed to Trashing Our Treasure, face and henna painting, yoga sessions, music, and storytelling.
