Kid’s Activities

Express Yourself! The purpose of this FREE arts initiative is to promote children’s art and exploration of the arts within the community at the Wheeling Arts & Culture Fest.

By connecting art and art education through workshops during the festival, students will begin to appreciate the professional artists that will be exhibiting during the festival.  Children will connect arts making to professional art works and performing

Through a series of scheduled workshops students will have the opportunity to be engaged in hands-on sessions where students can explore, express and appreciate meaningful art making taught by professional artists and arts educators in individual and collaborative format.

Whether taking part in a class or being a part of a community collaborative piece, one thing is for sure… students will be having fun while learning.
