Video Family Arts Day Huntington Beach Art Center  Interview with Lindsey


The heart of a community is its art. And the family that paints together has lots of fun in Huntington Beach's Family Arts Day. 


A community-based art center that offers camps, courses and concerts (occasionally), the Huntington Beach Art Center's most fun days, some say, is its Family Arts Day. Held each year (usually in the Fall), one the most fun events at the recent event was chalk painting in the parking lot of the museum. Inspired by a huge mural painted on the building next door that faces the museum, families got out the colorful chock and created a variety of graphic renderings that were made to last as long as it didn't rain, and the foot and car traffic didn't wear them away. Kind of like the Rose Parade floats filled with flowers in Pasadena, the chalk art renderings have a short shelf life.


In the video above, the family arts coordinator states that there are a variety of booths and types of activities available free of charge during Family Arts Day. There's circle art, acrylics, chalk, ceramics and more. The day includes entertainment with puppet shows, music and clinics or instructors to show youngster or even art-challenged adults how to dig in and have some fun. You don't have to have a family to attend this event. Singles are welcome, too! But children abound at the Family Arts Day and they really "paint the town" figuratively speaking.
