Event Summary

The Spring Arts Festival features demonstrations and workshops on painting and drawing, digital animation, ceramics and more.. Watch KSU Print’s steamroller print large-scale relief blocks during the block party. Create your own mold to be a part of a spectacular iron pour. Collaborate with your peers and enter “Chalk the ZMA” at the Zuckerman Museum of Art. If you’re the playful type, participate in our scavenger hunt, or goof around in our photo booth.

The Artist Market is a new addition to the Spring Arts Festival. This Market will feature 20 student groups from selected schools. The Artists Market will be promoted on all Spring Arts Festival materials. In addition, the Spring Arts Festival hosts a Pin-Up show allowing local artists and students the chance to compete in five categories: elementary, middle, high school, community and “Art from the Heart” for students with disabilities.
