Join us at the Vero Beach Museum of Art for our annual Children’s Art Festival event for the enjoyment of families and children of the community. The event, to be held on Saturday, April 30, 2022 from 10 am to 3 pm throughout the Museum, is inspired by the exhibition Vero Collects: Hidden Treasures Revealed. This year, creative art-making returns to the studios with MAS instructors inspiring young artists to try Easy Easel Painting, A-Door-Able designs inspired by Francis Sprout’s painting called Surrounded by Others, Express Yourself self-portraits, and Scratch Art Masterpieces with Tyler Evin and students from Indian River Charter High School.
VBMA Docents will facilitate fun activities in the galleries, including storytelling, sketching, movement with music and scarves, close-looking with spyglasses, and much more! Performances by local youth groups include Panther Performers, Imagine South Vero Tangerines, Moonshot Academy, Osceola Singers and Explorer Ensemble, Vero Classical Ballet, and Rhythm and Soul Dance.
Additionally, the VBMA is delighted to present the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra’s popular Once Upon an Orchestra musical series! These performances begin at 12:30pm and 1:30pm in Holmes Great Hall.
Visitors will enjoy free admission to the current exhibition Vero Collects: Hidden Treasures Revealed, and Martin Puryear: Printmaker. As well as student art exhibitions, including An Artistic Discovery – 2022, Congressional Art Competition presented by U.S. Congressman Bill Posey, and SDIRC Elementary School Student Art Show.
Lunch, snacks, and refreshments will be available for purchase from The Dignity Food Truck during the festival.
Museum programs are sponsored, in part, by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture. The Vero Beach Museum of Art is accredited by the American Association of Museums.
