ArtWise NW, a local mom-owned and teacher-run business, is bringing custom art projects for kids to the Edmonds Art Festival, Saturday, June 13 through Sunday, June 15.

The ArtWise “Kids Create Corner” will be located upstairs in the southwest corner of the Artists Plaza.

Children can create free art projects inspired by Washington’s coastal land and Native American tribes.

Artists, ages four to 12 years old, can paint, sculpt, draw, emboss and print at one of six “Pacific Northwest Beach” themed stations.

All artists are invited to leave a doodle on the first ever “Edmonds seascape” chalk wall, or create quality art pieces to take home.

ArtWise’s mission is to bring “art beyond the ordinary” to the Puget Sound community, especially to local schools.

“We are committed to helping people explore their artistic sense through unique art enrichment,” said ArtWise owner Dori Glass.

Glass and Isolde Beebe have been collaborating on art camps, programs and curriculum for over four years.

“Our classes inspire people, young and old, to create art for life,” Beebe said.

Each of the art activities can be completed in about 30 minutes, but if your young artist isn’t finished, projects can easily be completed at home.

If you’re interested in getting involved as an artist or volunteer, contact info@artwisenw.com.
