Celebrate the Earth with art in Buena Park

The Children’s Art Festival and Earthday Youth Art Show at the Buena Park Community Center provides a wonderful opportunity for parents and children to enjoy a day discovering the arts together. Hands-on art activities, live music, and much more provide a delightful celebration of the rich cultural traditions that thrive in our own backyards! In honor of Earth Day, festival activities will focus on being kind to our planet, so craft projects will incorporate found and recycled objects easily found in the home.

In conjunction with the Children’s Arts Festival, the Earthday Youth Art Show is a one day exhibit at the event showcasing artwork from students of Buena Park and surrounding cities. Students are encouraged to create art pieces that celebrate the earth or raise awareness about environmental issues. Prizes will be awarded to the place winners in each grade level and all artwork will be on display at the festival.
