Art Camps,  Projects & Events!

No upcoming events at the moment

Okay, so I've wanted to create some artwork for this super cool festival for two years now... and finally I CAN! But it's rather ambitious and so I'm going to need help. What am I doing? 

A CASTLE of the Arts! 

Four towers will represent individually, INNOVATION, FUNCTIONALITY, LITERARY and EXPRESSION. I plan to make in interactive for both adults and children and everyone in between! Cardboard, styrofoam, reclaimed wallpaper, carpet tube rolls, spools, plant pots... paper mache and painting and probably a LOT more!! Construction has begun and the Castle is taking shape quickly.  It will be serve as an outdoor mini venue for kids and big kids to learn more about how the Arts have shaped our civilizations. If all goes to plan, it will also be on display from July 17 - August 28th. 

If this is something your child or big kid may be interested in being a part of, I hereby INVITE you to grab one of the five tickets!
