Hyattsville Arts Festival: Arts and Ales: Open Studios and Free Fun for All on September 21, 2019!

You are invited!

Come out next Saturday, September 21 between 12pm and 6pm to enjoy the sights, sounds, and family-fun at the 2019 Downtown Hyattsville Arts Festival: Arts & Ales.

Pyramid Atlantic is excited to participate again this year with a jam-packed schedule of free activities, demonstrations, and more. We'll have hands-on activities or demonstrations in all 5 community studios—letterpress, printmaking, book arts, papermaking, and screenprinting–and opportunities to meet some of our teaching artists and learn more about our creative programming for all levels.

There's something for everyone in our complete schedule of activities for the day:

Make your own paper woven wall pendants in the Classroom!

Make your own cyanotype prints outside Pyramid!

1:00–3:00 pm:

Plus, our private studio artists will have their studio doors open throughout the event! Take a stroll through the studios on the ground floor, Gallery floor, and upper mezzanine, to see inside our artists' creative processes.
