Kid’s Activities at the Festival of Fine Craft 2013
Pamela A. Weichmann, Program Manager/Education & Artist Services
The Festival of Fine Craft was held on October 4 & 5. We were joined by 130 juried artists showcasing works in clay, fiber, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, wearable arts, wood, and mixed medium. Inspired families joined our teaching artists (Pamela Weichmann, Kassandra Huerta, and Lauren Wymbs) to learn, play, and create. Hands-on art activities included: faux stained glass pumpkin window hangers, paper beads, yarn painting, Day of the Dead masks, scarecrow construction, mural painting, and sidewalk chalk art.
Many parents and teachers asked us how they could do these activities at home or in their classroom. The links above will take you to tutorials of our most popular activities from the Festival.
