Magic Art Studio

The visual arts component of the Festival of Illusions — the Magic Art Studio — is once again onsite, at the Cultural Center. This year the newly repurposed art kit workshop room will be transformed into a Magic Makers Space, where kids of all ages can experiment with painting, printmaking, magic trick making, collage, clay and stop gap animation and enjoy our famous “Invention Station.” Four stations will rotate daily. No need to reserve a spot, just show up anytime during 10am to 12pm and jump into this art experience. Kids 8 and under need to be accompanied by an adult. Admission is $5 per person per day, all materials included. The Art Kit Pick Up Room will also be stocked with tons of Magical Art Projects “to go” for kids and families, for free or by donation.
