Browse Work from Local Artists at Free Downtown Rochester Event
Saturday, September 10th head to Downtown Rochester, MN for a cool, free event featuring local artists, art classes, and performances. It's an experience that the whole family can check out.
The event is called the Med City Art Festival. It's only happening on Saturday from 10 AM - 5 PM in the Peace Plaza. Like I mentioned, there will be lots to see and do while you're there. Throughout the day there will be different performances to watch and listen to. For example, a jazz trio will perform, there will be dances, and the Matchbox Children's theater will perform to name a few.
Something that both the kids and parents will enjoy is the different art classes that will be offered! One of the artists will teach a class, there will be a watercolor for beginners class, and also a pouring art class along with a few others. The pouring art class sounds especially interesting to me. You can also participate in painting a car and a chair that are being painted by people who attend the event.
Of course, artists will be there with their work as well. So spend some time browsing and admiring their hard work. This is especially a great time to get a piece of art if you've been looking to add something to your walls at home.
It sounds like a very fun event, especially for families whose kids are super into art right now (and what kid isn't into art?).
