Children's Art Adventure

City Park | Tipp City, Ohio | Purchase Wristband Below
Advance Purchase: $5 per child | Day of Event: $7 per child
The Children's Art Adventure is a themed arts festival unlike any other art opportunity for children in this area. This event offers children ages 3–12 from Tipp City and surrounding communities, the opportunity to explore many forms of art and different types of media at dozens of art stations. Some examples of projects are shoebox guitars, tie dye T-shirts, bookmaking, origami, necktie snakes, pendulum painting, recycled materials crafts and a community art project. Participation in art stations requires the purchase of a wristband. Admission allows unlimited workshop participation and includes all supplies for the projects. Some workshops may have a minimum age requirement due to the complexity of the project, and parents are encouraged to participate with younger children.
A brief history . . .
The idea for a children’s art festival was sparked by the Hands on the Arts Festival in Sunnyvale, California, where our organizer and her family lived prior to moving to Tipp City. August 2013 was the inaugural year for the TCAAC Children's Art Adventure. Each year, the festival has grown with more community and business involvement and hundreds of kids and their families coming to make and celebrate the arts!
