Offering Space for Fun and Families

If you love art, in its many different forms, you’re going to love this new space. It’s a new gallery in Grand Rapids, that’s very unique. It’s called Lions & Rabbits, and every day it’s a little different. One day you might see people taking an art or yoga class, but there’s also a place where you can buy art or hold an event. Lions & Rabbits is a space for everyone! There was a ton of fun in Maranda’s studio as it was overflowing with art and fun for kids. Classes that are fun for families include: Parent & Kid art, Private Lessons, Nursery Art Making, Family Yoga, Yoga for Kids, and Pregnancy Yoga. Check out the video above to see the exciting kids classes that are offered.

Play and shop the arts this December

Play and shop the arts this December

Ah, it’s that time of year again: the season for checking off gift lists and planning family outings. But before you schlep your way to the mall (or, let’s be honest: Amazon), take a look at what the local arts scene has in store. Shopping local art is not only a way to support your local arts community — it’s also a great way to fill your family’s stockings with something truly unique.

Likewise, if the movie theater is your family’s standard holiday “cultural” outing, there are endless ways to step up your game this year with memorable live performances and interactive experiences — experiences neither you nor your little ones are likely to forget anytime soon.

Take a look.
