The Village Center for the Arts in New Milford will host the second annual Paint the People event June 8 at Young's Field on Young's Field Road.

The all-day, family-friendly interactive event will feature community artists of many disciplines, opportunities for attendees to create as fine-artists do, a gala art exhibit of works by students in the area, an artist village, music, dance troupes and specialty food vendors.

Patrons who buy a wristband can participate in a variety of activities, including paint catapults, mural walls, paint wars, T-shirt tie-dye, face and body painting, group cartoon draw-alongs, extreme spin art and a paint-by-number car.

Admission is $5 per person, with a $20 cap for families of five or more. Children under 2 will be admitted for free.

Tickets will be available to the children of those receiving Social Services' assistance.

Admission to all interactive activities will be available by purchasing a $10 wristband.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at the VCA, 12 Main St.
