Kids’ Art Garden

We will gather resources and materials, organize volunteers, and facilitate the Art Garden activities on the weekend of the event.
Interns will be given service-learning experience in the areas of project management. Students will brainstorm possible local community partners, assist with event layout, communication and management.
Interns will be given service-learning experience in the area of visual art and will assist the Emerging Artist coordinator with the creation of a catalog of submitted artwork for display at the Suncoast Arts Fest. They will assist with exhibit set-up on Friday evening and Saturday morning. They will greet visitors and be scheduled in shifts to watch over the artwork at the Emerging Artist exhibit. On Sunday evening they will assist with taking down and packing the artwork for return to the submitting schools.
All festival proceeds are donated back to the community through the Arts for Kids mini-grant program, which provides funding for fine and performing arts projects in Pasco schools. You can help us meet our goals by making a tax deductible contribution to Fine Arts of the Suncoast.
