Ian Summer brings education and inspiration once again to RFA!                                                

Adding 2 tents allows us to offer quite a few free workshops over the 2 day festival in painting/mixed media, writing/literature/poetry,  and creating with mosaics, carving or similar types of hands-on instruction. All for free!  We can offer those attending the workshops inspired moments of possibilities that they may be able to take away with them in whatever form they choose to create from.

We will continue to offer younger children the very successful  Interactive Tent Area set up from previous years;  filled with projects, be it chalk art, paint, colored pencil designs or hooping!

This year we hope to inspire the emerging teen or early teens to experience the arts hands on. Create hope and joy to the surrounding area where the arts have been lessened or in some cases removed completely. Without art we are losing the necessary creative side of life with all her possibilities. Addressing this is our main goal throughout the event! Please sponsor or donate to the ARTS!

Ian Summers hosts the ‘Faces of Riverside Festival of the Arts’ now Art Draw Event for 2017!

Special Needs for all will be our community healing arts focus in 2017! See Children/Youth page
