Adults have come to know the Power Station as a space for innovative installations and education-rich programming. Saturday, a group comes together to translate that same message to a younger market with Generations, a four-hour stint of creativity through art and literature geared entirely toward families. Helping with the artsy stuff is our favorite team of do-it-yourselfers from Oak Cliff, Oil and Cotton. They’ll present free-form booklets loaded up with visual and written activities that interact with The Power Station’s current installation on the building’s first and second floors. Up on the third floor, they’re offering an iPhone Photography class at 3 p.m. That’s also where you’ll find Lisa Huffaker from The Writer’s Garret; she’ll be leading a poetry workshop at 4 p.m. At 6 o’clock, the whole thing wraps up in a complimentary barbecue, so you’ll have a food foundation before rolling over to Art Con 8. It’s free to attend, and Generations runs from 2 to 6 p.m. at the old Power and Light station at 3816 Commerce St. Visit thepowerstation-dallas.tumblr.com.
