01 August, 2019

Sawdust artists share their expertise with kids age 4-10 yrs. at The Art Spot and 7yrs. to adult at Studio One. Classes are relaxed and fun and mostly free or $5 to cover material costs. Kids can learn to throw a pot at the Ceramic Center, create a bug stick puppet, egg crate owl or construct a watermelon pinata and so much more. Adults can create their own abstract Basquiat, eucalyptus bark painting or learn Origami/foil punch art, beading, glass fusing, rock art in clay to name just a few!  

Theme Days Music

Aug. 3: Speakeasy Day features jazz from the era with Tommy Benson and Brett Ecklund, Amanda Castro Band, a swing set from The Hot Club De Bop and fittingly, Moonshine Band.
Aug. 17: Woodstock Day revisits the 60s with Woodstock Mud, Skeleton Crew (Grateful Dead tribute), and Love Chutney’s Indian sitar vibes.
Aug. 24: On Beatles Day the British Invasion invades again with Isle of Lucy and The Heretics.

At the entrance to the Sawdust Festival is Heritage Village. This mini-enclave features artwork from Sawdust artists past and present and pays homage to their booths. Tracey Moscaritolo’s twirling windmill, Ron Rodecker’s castle and the 1973 spaceship of Star Sheilds and Hi Ho Silver are a few of the marvels to see plus the “Unstoppable Well of Creativity” where water continuously flows. Heritage Village is ideal for a brief respite and guests are welcome to sign the guest book on the podium.
