Let the scenic beauty of Arches National Park inspire you -- and your kids. On Saturday, November 9, 2013, take a free family art lesson with 2013 Community Artist-in-the-Parks, Sarah Hamingson. All materials provided -- just bring your inspiration.

Pastel lessons will be offered at the North end of the Park Avenue Trail at 10:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., & noon, or drop in anytime from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. (Park at Courthouse Towers Viewpoint and follow signs across the road.) That evening from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at the Moab Arts & Recreation Center, view “A Season in the Parks” displaying Sarah's work as Community Artist. (Exhibit will be on display through early December.) Park admission is free Saturday, November 9 through Monday, November 11. 

The Community Artist-in-the-Parks program highlights the connection between a Southeast Utah artist and his/her inspiration.

Landscape Arch

Landscape Arch is the longest arch in Arches National Park, measuring 306 feet from base to base. In 1991, a massive slab of rock fell from its underside, resulting in an even thinner ribbon of rock.
