WHERE THE SIDEWALK ENDS – POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
While we await and see what the next few weeks look like, we feel it is prudent to postpone registration for this festival. We hope to be able to reschedule for a later date.
Fun4GatorKids and Yopp! Inc. are excited to announce Where the Sidewalk Ends: Family Arts Festival for Youth Art Month to take place at Magnolia Parke. Admission to the public is free. The festival includes art vendors, music, food, art activities, art demonstrations, kid’s activities, and family-friendly organizations. We look forward to spending an inspiring and creative fun-filled day with you to help promote Youth Art Month.

This marks the 59th Anniversary of Youth Art Month (YAM), a month of promoting art and art education in the United States. It is observed in March, with thousands of American schools participating, often with the involvement of local art museums and civic organizations. YAM was founded by the Crayon, Water Color & Craft Institute, Inc., in cooperation with the National Art Education Association, in 1961. YAM 2020’s theme is “Take a Journey through Art”.
The Council for Art Education, which sponsors YAM, says, “Art education develops self-esteem, appreciation of the work of others, self-expression, cooperation with others, and critical thinking skills, skills vital to the success of our future leaders — our children.”.
Yopp! inc. is devoted to bringing family-friendly, educational and cultural events to our community that inspire creativity and empowerment of youth. All proceeds from Where the Sidewalk Ends will go to create art programs for youth in our community.
“Art is something one can use to search for the creative part of yourself. It has made me think a lot about what I can do.” — A high school student
