Artrageous: Remotely Reimagined

Presented by PNC Bank

The 31st Artrageous Kids Art Festival will look different this year, but Dare County Arts Council is ensuring that the community will be able to experience the beloved event in 2020.

After being postponed in May, Artrageous will embrace virtual learning this fall and be “Remotely Reimagined” into a two-part event, including three drive-thrus with free art kits for children to take home and a digital art show featuring visual, performing and literary arts by Dare County students.

“We believe in the very essential role that art and creativity play in education,” said Dare County Arts Council Program Director Jessica Sands. “Our hope is to inspire students to be creative, honor the dedicated art, music and theater teachers in Dare County who are teaching remotely during a pandemic, and share amazing artwork with the whole community.”

The Artrageous Art Kit Drive-Thrus will take place at Cape Hatteras Elementary School, Thurs., Oct. 15; Manteo Elementary School, Thurs., Oct. 22; and First Flight Elementary School, Sat., Oct. 24.

Parents can register their elementary school aged students to pick up a free art kit at one of the drive-thru events online here. Sign up for the drive-thru location that is most convenient for you, and please note that registration is required to participate due to limited art kit availability.
