 Kids Arts Festival 2013

A new generation of artists!

The annual Kids Arts Festival is the biggest arts event for children held in West Auckland, a chance for children to show their creativity, try their hand at varied art workshops and take to the stage.  This year the Kids Arts Festival’s theme at Corban Estate Arts Centre is ‘My Generation’ and invites children to express how they see their 21st century world.

All this will be happening between 10 am and 4pm on Saturday 18th of May.  While the focus is on children ages 5 – 13, this free event is one for the whole family.  Everyone can enjoy multi-cultural children's music and dance performances, view an exhibition of artworks by students from some West Auckland schools, or join in free hands-on art workshops.  

 This year, the art workshops include sculpture using fibre, clay, junk or cardboard; shadow puppetry, Maori and Pacific weaving, and creating novelty bags from T-shirts. Children can drop-in to any of the workshops throughout the day and stay as long as they like.

There will also be a range of snacks and refreshments available throughout the event; whether you want to indulge yourself in freshly made taste delights and a coffee experience at the Coffee Studio, purchase food from one of the foodstalls, or bring your own picnic to have in the park.

Come sunshine or rain, the Kids Arts Festival 2013 happens on Saturday 18 May. We’d love to see you there!
