HANNIBAL | The Hannibal Arts Council's First Friday Art Adventure workshop series continues with a special Mondrian-inspired project at 5:30 p.m. Friday, March 6, at 105 S. Main St. in Hannibal. 

Dutch artist Piet Mondrian was born in March of 1872. He was one of the pioneers of 20th century abstract art and known for his use of bright, graphic colors. Participants will celebrate Mondrian's birth month by learning about the abstract movement in art and creating an abstract painting on canvas. The project will be led by Becky Evans, HAC Board member and Children's Program Committee Chair.

First Friday Art Adventures are designed for kids ages 6-12 and are held on the first Friday of designated months at the Hannibal Arts Council. Parents, grandparents and/or guardians are encouraged to take advantage of the free time while their child creates.

Due to limited space, pre-registration and pre-payment (unless requesting scholarship) is required. Tickets are $5 per child. Tickets are available by visiting www.eventbrite.com (search for First Friday Art Adventure), calling the Hannibal Arts Council at 573-221-6545 or stopping by 105 S. Main St.

The scholarship program for free participation is available thanks to generous support by the George H. Riedel Private Foundation, HAC Scholarship Fund Donors and the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
