The Okee Dokee Brothers
The Okee Dokee Brothers will bring their traditional bluegrass roots music Saturday to World Cafe Live.
The Minneapolis duo, winners of the Parents' Choice award for their album Take It Home, will perform original music focused on their unique style of wordplay. Their songs are known for their humor, and kids can learn about America's roots, as well as bluegrass music, while singing along.
'Three's a Crowd'
Three-dimensional figures are a part of "Three's a Crowd" on Sunday afternoon at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts' Family Arts Academy Workshop.
From 2 to 3:30 p.m., guests can learn how to make three-dimensional pictures. Participants will see different views of objects when looking from the front, right, and left sides. From the mystery and simplicity of folding, attendees will discover that, with art, what you see is not always what you get.
The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts' Family Arts Academy strives to strengthen initiatives in family development and art education while learning, creating, and having fun.
