Also this week was the beginning of the first Kids Art Fest, where about 15 kids were loaded with paint and brushes to create their own rendition of a Jackson Pollack painting. The Sandusky Bay Farmers’ Market website reads:

Every Friday from June 18th to August 6th the Farmers’ Market will host a Kids Art Fest where children of all ages can come and learn how to throw paint like Picasso. Athena Pribanic, a fine arts student at the Columbus College of Art and Design, will be instructing the event week to week. Painting instructions are provided from 3-6pm (kids can arrive at anytime to participate).

Each week kids will learn how to paint like the great artists of the past and present. They’ll be provided with non-toxic paints, a painter’s apron, practice paper, brushes, and a final prepared canvas where everyone will paint together in the style of that week. See the dates below to attend a session:

  • June 18 – Paint like Jackson Pollack. “Throwing paint is art.”
  • June 25 – Painting Cubism. “Cubes or Squares?”
  • July 2 – Painting Surrealism. “Paint your dreams.”
  • July 9 Paint like Mondrian. “Red, Blue and Yellow take over.”
  • July 16Painting Impressionism. “Mixing color with light.”
  • July 23Painting Art Nouvea. “Swirls, swirls and more swirls.”
  • July 30Printmaking with puzzles. “Make your mark.”
  • August 6 – Kids Art Show.

At the end of the 8 weeks the Farmers’ Market will showcase all the kids paintings (August 6th). Afterward, the paintings will be rotated in local businesses to be sold as a fundraiser for the program and for the promotion of arts and cultural events in Erie County, OH. Bids will be taken on each painting until October 31st.
