Hands on the Arts is an all-day children’s art festival, held annually the third Saturday in May. The event features more than 30 workshop booths where children can try their hands at different art forms. Professional artists lead workshops using a wide variety of arts and craft materials and techniques, as well as music and dance. Many of the workshops introduce children to unique art forms from different cultures, such as Indian rangoli, Chinese silk knotting, Japanese brush painting and Mexican folklorico dancing.
