On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description

Spend a few hours creating art with your favorite people! We invite you to bring your family and friends to Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha) for a fun, creative project everyone can enjoy! We will spend fun time together as we learn the art of rock painting with mandalas, which are sacred works of art in the form of a circle. Using smooth stones, paints and fine dotting tools, we will make beautiful, detailed mandalas! Facilitator Andi Lewis will guide us in this fun, relaxing process that can be done by anyone, regardless of age. We will have time to paint several rocks and will be encouraged to take one rock home and leave one as a secret gift for a stranger to find. (If you’ve already experienced this popular class, consider coming the evening before for Seasonal Tree Rock Painting instead!) No experience or artistic skill is necessary, but kids 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. (It is ideal for ages 10 and older.) The cost is $13 per person and includes rocks and all art supplies. Please register and pay by Jan. 29. This class always sells out, so register today at www.Prairiewoods.org or 319-395-6700.
