Is your family looking for fun, creative ways to stay active and entertained this summer? Tumwater Parks & Recreation invites you to participate in the Tumwater Art Stars program!
Staff have created Art Kits for community members to pick up and weekly themes to spark your creativity. We encourage you to get your neighborhood in on the fun too! Community members are encouraged to reserve additional Art Kits and pass them out to neighbors. The art medium is SIDEWALK CHALK! See below for the weekly chalk-art themes.

The Arts Make Better Communities!
In communities large and small, arts and culture are important contributors to the quality of life for residents. With the voter-approved Metropolitan Park District in place, there is now additional funding for parks facilities maintenance and enhanced recreation programming – including cultural arts. The City of Tumwater is in the early stages of developing a Cultural Arts Plan. A group of 30 community arts leaders has been convened as the initial task force to serve as the oversight for this work.
Tumwater’s Cultural Arts Task Force is gathering information about cultural resources and programs in Tumwater, including those related to the arts, culture, history, education, and community. We will use the information to craft a cultural arts plan for our community and to learn how to support, promote, and grow Tumwater’s arts and cultural offerings.
If you live, work, or just spend time in Tumwater, please take a few minutes to complete the Cultural Arts Plan Survey, available on the City website: www.ci.tumwater.wa.us/arts-task-force
