Channel your inner artist and create a masterpiece with mixed media and collage activity led by the Art Barn School of Art, or a Plant Portraits activity led by the South Bend Museum of Art. Enjoy the backdrop of musical performances by the Music Village while you watch plein air painters in action as they draw inspiration from their surroundings at Lydick Bog Nature Preserve. This event will celebrate the local art community while allowing visitors of all ages to create their own works of art!
