The first annual Clearwater Children’s Art Festival will take place on Tuesday, Aug. 7, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Weyerhaeuser Park.

Many wonderful activities are planned for all ages. There will be 10 art stations run by local artists. Some of the stations are: drumming with Melody Steffenson, acrylic painting with Robyn Walker, preschool crafts with Donna Coleman, painted tiles with Charlene Lau, cupcake decorating with Cara Pelton, a dress-up and drama station with Eleanor Deckert, acrylic painting with Joan Smith and Jennifer Wadlegger, eraser drawing with Clara Shipp and Justine Kreke, plus printmaking, face painting and two murals to paint on.

Lemonade, popcorn and cotton candy will be sold for $1.00. Families are encouraged to pack a lunch and a blanket and plan to spend the day at the park.

The event will be free. However there will be a donation jar at the front entrance and at the main stage with a suggested donation of $5. Organizers are also asking for donations for the food bank as they have lent out several of their tents for the venue.

Participants will receive a festival passport at the entrance and will be able to plan their day by signing up for various workshops ahead of time. Spots will be left open for drop in participants as well.

The main intent of the festival is to build our artistic community in Clearwater, to include the children and give them a sense of belonging and identity.


The focus will be on enjoying the process of making and experiencing art. Organizers hope to make this a yearly event, so please make an effort to attend this wonderful festival and invite all you friends!
