In September, Arts-A-Glowing, a one-month virtual and in-person version of the popular Arts-A-Glow event brought light to Burien. Activities included lantern-making videos, a porch-decorating contest, art installations in storefront windows by past Glow artists, daylight art installations in Dottie Harper Park, and pop-up projection-mapping exhibits around town.

Día de los Muertos
This year, maybe more than others, it’s important to carry on the Día de los Muertos tradition. Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a holiday that celebrates the lives of loved ones that have passed during the year. Staff is working with volunteers from the local Latino community to transform a one-evening celebration to a month-long event where you can participate from your home or elsewhere around the city. Some elements will include at-home altar building, storytelling, and art installations. Learn more at: burienwa.gov/ddlm.
After extensive research on virtual program possibilities and platforms, staff coordinated with instructors to broadcast classes in clay arts, dance fitness, and Tai Chi using Zoom. Participants said they were all thankful for the opportunity to reconnect!
Next up—dog obedience, ballet, Skyhawks youth sports programs, and more clay classes taught by renowned artists.
Youth & Teen Programs
This fall, staff will be offering a variety of physical recreation classes virtually, including hip-hop dance, jazz dance, pre-ballet, preschool basketball, soccer, and physical education fun. These classes will be offered for preschoolers and youth with a focus on physical recreation and body movement.
