Art in the Yard fun

The 2nd annual Art in the Yard was a fun- and sun-filled afternoon for kids. Children ages 2-10 created different art projects at stations throughout the “yard” of the David Strawn Art Gallery in Jacksonville. Some activities included water gun painting, superhero masks, Gak!, creating tambourines, painting with Hot Wheel cars and trucks, imagining an artwork that could be created from each child’s handprint, and even making hats. Face painting was available, too, which demanded filling some tall orders from these creative kiddos, including “Deadpool,” the character Pennywise from Steven King’s “IT,” Donatello (as preparation for one little girl’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles-themed birthday party), Hello Kitty and pink cats. Also at the event was Miss Polly’s Music Class, balloon artists and more. The 3-hour event was a fundraiser for the Art Association of Jacksonville; “The Art Association of Jacksonville believes art is a valuable experience for everyone.”
