Fool for Art This Saturday
Posted on April 08, 2013
Two huge tents - the Art of Learning Tent and the Celebrate our Earth Tent - will be going up soon at the Midlothian Campus in preparation for this weekend's Fool for Art Festival. The festival features more than 100 art and craft vendors, lots of hands-on activities, free educational sessions, information on how to go green, food, music and so much more. Fool for Art, now in its eight year, is free and open to the community.
What's Fool for Art like? Well, in the past, John Tyler Community College and Chesterfield County have packed the day with fun activities, including exploding pickles, basketball-playing robots, jesters, nature journals, sun visors, storytelling, music, photography sessions, technology classes, green displays and tips, super bouncy balls and so much more. New activities/sessions this year include making your own lip balm, yoga, funeral planning, juggling, beekeeping, a Civil War primer, Irish dancing, balloon animals, personalized tote bags, soccer drills and Roman coin painting.
Fool for Art runs Saturday, April 13 from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. on the Midlothian Campus. There will also be free paper shredding in parking lot D from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
