The Arts and Heritage Center of North Augusta is introducing a new program on the first Saturdays starting in February.
“Every other month there will be a children’s program and every other month there will be a program for adults,’’ said board member Yvonne Kinney.
The center is open for free to the public on first Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., said Kinney, adding that the program is a way to help raise awareness about the first Saturdays.
Each month’s program will last from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The Feb. 1 event will be for children ages 5 to 12 and feature making Valentines.
Parents are asked to remain in the center during the program. Refreshments will be provided for parents.
The March program will be geared toward adults and focus on camellias in conjunction with the annual SpringFest.
In April, children will have a chance to create bouquets out of egg cartons as an Easter project. Visitors are also encouraged to view the center’s exhibits and gift shop, said Kinney.
“We figure this would be a good way for people to see the facility and see what’s going on,” she said.
