"GO FLY A KITE!" ARTHAUS PLAYS HOST TO FREE COMMUNITY KITE FLYING DAY PART OF iMAGINE UPSTATE FESTIVAL, SUNDAY MARCH 29, 2:30-4:30 p.m. AT KROC CENTER WITH FOOD AND DRINKS . KIDS AND PARENTS WELCOMED!

Artist Leonardo DaVinci was a true renaissance man with many interests. As an inventor one of his favorite inventions was his flying machine that inspired the invention of the modern day airplane.

Art and engineering go hand in hand, with art at the root of almost every subject. Today many parents and schools are turning toward S.T.E.M or S.T.E.A.M (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics) based education for youth in our high tech world. In the creative spirit of Leonardo Davinci ,the Arthaus Greenville invites the upstate community to design their own kites for "Go Fly A Kite!", a FREE day of family, fun, visual arts, basic engineering and kite flying, also apart of the dynamic new iMAGINE Upstate Festival March 28- April 4th 2015.

Arthaus Greenville is an artist run collective with the goal of developing a community accessible art space and makerspace in Greenville. "Go Fly A Kite!" is open to kids and adults of all ages. The most creative handmade kite at the event will receive a free camera drone with additional prizes for runners up. There is no charge for admission, but donations are welcome and all proceeds go toward fulfilling the mission of the Arthaus. Food and beverages will also be on hand.

This exciting community event for the Upstate takes place Sunday, March 29th from 2:30 p.m. till 4:30 p.m. on the Kroc Center Soccer field located at 420 Westfield Street in Greenville in front of the Salvation Army Kroc Center and right behind the A.J. Wittenberg Elementary School of Engineering.
