Artrageous Kids Art Festival Is This Saturday, Sept. 18


Presented by PNC Bank

Children’s art stations, live music, art vendors, dance and theatre performances, food vendors and more family-friendly fun will be featured at Dowdy Park in Nags Head from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Sat., Sept. 18, during the 32nd annual Artrageous Kids Art Festival.


Artrageous will feature numerous free art stations where children can make their own glass suncatchers, sensory bottles, paper kites, printmaking cards, refrigerator magnets, chalk art and other fun creations. Attendees also can visit with local firefighters, take home or donate books at Sherry Smalley’s “Book it with Joy” station and get their favorite designs painted on their hands.


“Artrageous is truly OUTrageous,” said glass artist Jack Horst. “Where else do you have the chance to help so many kids design and create their own masterpieces while demonstrating the science behind the art? As an artist, the answer is only at Artrageous. I am looking forward to making glass suncatchers with the kids.”


This year’s event theme, Be You! You’re An Original, encourages children to celebrate being themselves while creating original artwork.
