Kids Activities

At Art on the Avenue, kids are encouraged not only to look at all the artwork, but to create some of their own. Local artists and non-profit groups team up to provide a real creative experience for young visitors, helping them create a special work of art to take home, or participate in a project that will go on display in the neighborhood.

Kids Art Corner will be on the field at Mt. Vernon Community School right next to the Food Court.
