The Hannibal Arts Council will present the Wild & Wacky Art Adventure, a free hands-on arts festival for children 3 to 12 and their families, from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 3, in Hannibal’s Central Park. This year’s theme “Artspalooza” will be packed with creative hands-on projects with an art-focused theme.
Hands-on activities are the backbone of the event. This year’s theme-related projects will include: Stick to It Duct Tape Pouches, Spin Art, Spray Dye Masterpiece T-Shirts, Puppets at the Theatre, Creative Clay Art, Friends of Historic Hannibal’s Box Town, Sidewalk Art Community Mural, as well as additional activities/demonstrations featuring visual arts, dance, music and martial arts.
The Hannibal Arts Council created the Wild & Wacky Art Adventure to provide positive and healthy activities in which parents and children can interact, work side by side, explore creativity, and in some ways strengthen the sense of family. In order for the event to be free, local businesses and organizations are sponsoring the event in partnership with the Hannibal Arts Council. Organizational partners include Hannibal Parks and Recreation Department, Parents as Teachers and Friends of Historic Hannibal.
