Student Art Exhibit/Creative Education Tent Provides Free Fun for the Family

IMAGES: A Festival of the Arts is an event that the entire family can enjoy. Stroll through the festival and explore the fine arts, enjoy live music and performances, stop by the Creative Education tent for free art projects geared specifically to kids, and take a look at the Student Art Exhibit.

Atlantic Center for the Arts partners with Volusia County teachers to showcase the artwork of young, emerging artists in the Student Art Exhibit, where the art of talented students from New Smyrna Beach High School, New Smyrna Beach Middle School, Coronado Beach Elementary School, Chisholm Elementary School, Sacred Heart Catholic School, Read-Pattillo Elementary School, Edgewater Public School, Indian River Elementary School, Mainland High School, Holly Hill Middle School, Samsula Academy, Burns Science & Technical Charter School, and Conklin Davis Center for Visually Impaired in Daytona Beach is on display.

Atlantic Center for the Arts also presents the popular Creative Education Tent with fun art activities for children and their parents. Kids can participate in hands-on, take-away projects to go, and enjoy a Sparkly Tattoo! These creative and inclusive projects have been developed for all children, including those who are blind or low-sighted, and include tactile elements. Kids will create Silly or Scary Yarn-Wrapped Monsters; 3-D Mosaics using air dry clay, beads, shells, and pasta shapes; and Mixed-Media Necklaces made from large cardboard “beads” with unique textures, plastic caps and other mixed media items.

The Creative Education area and Student Art Exhibit are open 10 AM to 3 PM on Saturday, and 11 AM to 3 PM on Sunday. Stop by and enjoy the fun!
