It looks like it's going to be another beautiful weekend in the Tri-States and a great reason to get out and enjoy the ArtFest at Quincy Art Center.

My girls and I do this every year and we spend hours creating art and just having fun together. The ArtFest will be this Saturday, September 17 from 1 pm - 4 pm at the Quincy Art Center (1515 Jersey) and is free to attend. Not only do you get to do all sorts of different art you can also learn about the educational services and all of the programs that the art center does all year.

The Artfest will include free and low-cost hands-on activities such as wheel-throwing, sidewalk chalk, scratchboard art, rock painting, no-look drawing, and an exhibit scavenger hunt. The Budding Artist will be there with a paint-your-own-pottery project. Also, the Quincy Public Library and the Quincy Community Theatre, Quincy Children’s Museum, The Lorenzo Bull House, and Arts Quincy will be at ArtFest with free activities.

It really is a fun day to spend outside and inside (visit the two exhibits on display during the event) and to learn more about what the Quincy Art Center really is all about. Take it from me this is a great way to spend time with the family and create some art you can hang on the fridge or the wall. It helped get my girls into the arts and I know it will do the same for you and your family.
