Kiwanis Youth Arts Village
Saturday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
sunday -- 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Along with annual favorites like tie-dying, hats, and construction kids, the art activities in the Kiwanis Youth Arts Village include the following:
Reduce, reuse, recycle! This year we will be recycling textiles, AKA t-shirts, to make a reusable grocery bag! Kids will cut and tie the fabric to make a reusable bag!
Kids will use word stencils to create pictures on their new, up-cycled t-shirt bags!
What a classic! Kids will have the freedom to paint whatever their heart desires with all of the materials ready and waiting for them!
Task ala Oliver Herring
Kids pick one of many tasks along with what material is available - from assorted cardboard to duct tape - and create what their dreams can conjure.
Youth Arts Annual TRADITIONS
$5/shirt - This annual favorite gives our youngest attendees a chance to make their own unique Black Swamp Arts Festival Shirt! BSAF volunteers will be on hand to help participants with the tie-dye process and to achieve the desired design and color of their finished shirts.
Working with BGSU Architecture and Construction Management students and the Wood Working Guild, kids will design and build their own wooden toy or artistic masterpiece!
This is a very popular area with limited room. Please arrive to the site early to sign up for a time.
PAPER SUN HATS
A BSAF tradition. Decorate your own paper sun hat with markers, stickers, flowers, and whatever is around to make the most unique hat at the Festival!
The Family Stage
One of three live music stages at The Black Swamp Arts Festival, The Family Stage hosts shows for all ages featuring local acts, children's musicians, and family performances from some of our featured musicians. This year you will be able to catch Bowling Green High School musical groups as well as the Latin sounds of Radio Free Honduras and local favorites.
