New monthly Picasso's Playgroup art program is for young children and their busy parents

Parents can visit with other parents in a relaxed atmosphere as their kids ages two to five create art projects during a new intergenerational art class being offered by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.

Picasso's Playgroup is the name of this program, which starts with the premise that juggling parenthood and a career is not easy. So join this program this program as we meet at the Roeland Park Early Childhood Development Center to share a simple kid-friendly meal. Don't feel guilty if you're a little late or need to leave early.

To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under preschool and then under fine & performing arts. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “art.”

Picasso's Playgroup will meet at 6 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 28 at the Roeland Park Community Center, 4850 Rosewood Dr., Roeland Park. The cost for one two-hour session is $10 per person, including adults, for Johnson County residents or $11 per person for nonresidents. Please register at least one week in advance to eat dinner. This program will be offered again on April 25.

The JCPRD’s Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, see the District’s website at
