The arts inspire and entertain us. Imagine what a boring world we would have without artistic outlets? Whether it's performing or visual arts, we've got you covered.
Here's what should be on your to-do list for an arts-centric weekend away:
The Fort Wayne Ballet and Fort Wayne Dance Collective regularly feature some of the best talents in the region. Check their websites for a schedule of upcoming performances.
Take in a Show
Film buffs will be at home at the city's art house, Cinema Center, which is located in the heart of downtown.
Maybe you prefer to be on the other side and create your own art.
Painting Fun Spot in Jefferson Pointe is another DIY venue. I recently tried Painting with a Twist with my mother-in-law, and we both enjoyed the experience. The teacher was very attentive and provided easy-to-follow instruction.
Attend a Festival
Depending on when you visit, you might have the opportunity to take in a festival. Hobbnobben Film Festival, Taste of the Arts, Middle Waves Music Festival and the Three Rivers Festival all promote the arts in one way or another.
There's never a bad time to get your art on!
