GRCM's Sixth Annual Kid's Artfest

Engage with the West Michigan Woman Community!

"Explore your creative side with painting, sculpting, and more, at the Grand Rapids Children's Museum sixth annual Kids' ArtFest, a free celebration of the arts on September 27th, noon-5:00pm on Sheldon Ave and Veteran's Park, in front of the museum.

Held in the midst of ArtPrize, Kids' Art Fest gives children of all ages hands-on experience at a variety of art mediums, including painting, pastel drawing, clay sculpture, print making, jewelry making, illustration, and more. In addition, there will be live music and dance performances and presentations throughout the afternoon at the entertainment stage.

"Families that have been walking around viewing all the ArtPrize work can then come down and actually do some artwork of their own. Kids' Art Fest is a great introduction to so many kinds of art forms," says Adrienne Brown, Marketing and Events Manager at the GRCM. While making their own artwork, kids also will have the opportunity to meet some of the artists participating in this year's ArtPrize event.

This is the sixth year for this popular event. "Kids' Art Fest gets more exciting every year! It's inspiring to see the natural artist in children come out," says Robert Dean, Executive Director.

In addition to ArtPrize artists, GRCM is collaborating with local organizations including Gilda's Club of Grand Rapids, the Creative Youth Center, The Salvation Army Kroc Center, Fat Blossom Farms, and more to lead art and activity stations during the event.

Come create and explore with the Grand Rapids Children's Museum Kids' Art Fest, Sunday, September 27, 2015 from noon to 5:00pm! All outdoor activities are free, regular admission will be charged to play inside the museum."
