ArtZone! at Chocolate Fest 2015

By Taylor Fengya

As always, we will have an Art Zone area at Chocolate Fest for the kids and the kids at heart! A ticket to Chocolate Fest will not only allow you to sample chocolate desserts, beverages, beer, and wine, but it will also give you the opportunity to participate in a number of different art stations in the Art Zone area.

This year, we will have five high school students and Arts for Learning teaching artist, Jude Odell, running art stations with a variety of activities. These five students have recently completed Arts for Learning’s fine arts summer apprenticeship, ArtForce. For three weeks over the summer, these students received daily instruction from clay expert and teaching artist, Jude Odell, along with a number of specialty workshops in areas such as drawing, comic book art, fabric art, and animation. We are thrilled to have these students and Ms. Odell prepare art activities for this year’s Art Zone area!

Want to know more about Art Zone? Come check it out for yourself on Saturday, October 17 from 12—4pm at the Dallara IndyCar Factory. Bring your kids, work on an art project together, and enjoy some chocolate! What could be better?
