Artfest Easel Invasion ~ Daily, from 1pm - 4pm - an experience you'll never forget!!
22 art easels are set up and ready for you to paint on in the park so you can experience painting En Plien Air. Led by one of our talented Wallacks artists, you will be guided through a step by step lesson on composing your masterpiece!

Visitors to Artfest may be curious and a bit hesitant and shy to try our Easel Invasion project; however, our Artfest Team encourages everyone to help and participate. We NEED your creative talents to participate and all artists may take their painting home or, feel free to donate it for a fundraising auction for the Shriner's Children's Hospital.
We are looking forward to seeing the end results and raising money for our Shriner's Hospital for children! See you soon!!
