Oconomowoc Festival of the Arts

Children's Area

Do your children love to create art? Do you dislike the prep work and clean-up that goes into it?
No problem, leave all that to us!

Come and visit the Children’s Art tent and let your kids create their own masterpiece! This year when you arrive at the gate, pick up your program and a SCAVENGER HUNT sheet for the kids. As you walk around the festival, help them find and check off the images on the sheet, and bring them back to the Children’s Art tent to claim their prize. Last year the kids loved painting rocks, so that will be available again this year along with: face painting, temporary tattoos, mural painting, multi-media art, crafts and more.

Thank you, in advance, for making art a priority for your children.
