DARIEN, Conn. – Darien children can “Spring into Art” with flower-themed activities at a special workshop on Saturday at the Darien Arts Center.

Kids can also get creative at “Stretch Your Imagination,” the DAC’s April vacation camp that will be held from Monday, April 13 through Thursday, April 16.
