Great art experiences do not always happen only in the art room. There are opportunities where families can share the fine arts together. Join hundreds of visitors at the Peoria Art Guild's 51st Fine Art Fair along the Illinois Riverfront Saturday, September 28 and Sunday, September 29, 2013 from 10am to 5pm. Every year, one can find artists and their art from the United States and various countries sharing, explaining, and selling their unique creations.
As you view the various kinds of art, discuss the media, ask the artists what inspired them, and think about how their art makes you feel. Choose something you like and try to recreate it at home, just remember to add something of yourself to make it your own. Most of the artists have biographies at their exhibit, read them! You can learn about the artist you find the most interesting.
Along with viewing and purchasing art, visitors have a chance to contribute to the community tile mural and children can visit Children's Art Activities. Children will have hands on opportunities to create jewelry, folk art and 3D sculptures. The price is $5.00 per child for all 6 activities. Enjoy local food, relax and unwind to live music with dance performances throughout the weekend.
