Surround yourself with the creativity of students at the Youth Art Exhibition

Awards are given in four different age groups and art for the Shoreline School District’s 2018-19 calendar is also selected from this exhibit of 2D and 3D artworks. This year’s Youth Art Exhibit juror is Amy Pleasant.

Get creative at the Hands-On Art stations for children and adults
This summer under the Hands-On Art tent we look up at the stars! Join us for several Space- themed projects! Use your imagination to create a 3D Rocket Ship to blast off, using a tube, paper, and shiny d├ęcor. Design your own mini Alien Sculpture and give it some color! Create a view into the galaxy by using shiny pens and crayons to represent star clusters with the Telescope Constellation Drawing. Then return home by creating a water-colored Planet Earth. And what would the Hands-On Art tent be without the wonderful Gyotaku Fish Prints? Use real or rubber fish to create a colorful, painted fish to take home.

Tantalize your taste buds at the Food Truck Food Court
Get lunch, dinner, or just a sweet treat at this year’s Arts Festival Food Court. Conveniently located by the Showmobile Stage, the food court is the perfect place to grab lunch, meet your neighbors, and enjoy the festival atmosphere. Galaxy Donuts will be back! We’ll also have Da Shave Ice Shack on hand for a “10 minute Hawaiian Vacation”.
