The most fun you can have with paint in one day, Paintfest features a wide variety of fun and unique painting activities for the whole family as well as workshops for children with their grownups. This year's theme features painting three dimensional objects.

Open activities (recommended for ages 2 and up, no pre-registration required) will include ornament painting, stained glass, cookie painting, homemade puff paint, face painting and more. Additionally, the children will be painting a car, courtesy of Five Star Subaru. Workshops include Unexpected Still Life (age 5+), Treasure Box (age 5+), and Tie-Dye (all ages). A $5 donation is suggested, but all of the activities are offered for free except for the Tie-Dye workshop. There is a $10 charge to cover the cost of materials for the Tie-Dye workshop, which includes a new shirt which you get to keep. Registration is recommended for the workshops.

To register for Unexpected Still Life, Treasure Box, and Tie-Dye, email Amy at WorldOfLearning@live.com or call 607-431-8543. Please note the names and number of your children. There is room for up to ten children in each workshop.
