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.

Artist Demonstrations will be held in the empty grass lot between the businesses of Bean Creative and Kiskadee, between Del Ray Ave and Custis Ave, on the east side of Mt. Vernon Ave.
