Art Around Town – Riverside Arts Market

Apr

15

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of going to the Riverside Arts Market with my son.  This weekly gathering of artisans, farmers, and vendors is quite the site to behold.  Drawing people from all over the Jacksonville area the market offers unique hand crafted items, delicious culinary treats, live entertainment, and much, much more.

Jacksonville Arts League at Creativity Corner

We began by stopping in at the Creativity Corner to make a masterpiece for my son to take home.  The Art League of Jacksonville was facilitating the art project that day.  We made scribble drawings where we closed our eyes, made a scribble, then added details to make it look like something else.

We visited a number of vendors including AlaArt, JC’s Daily Bread, Mom and Pop Crafts, and the farmer’s market.

We loved watching the girls with day-glow hair hula hooping…

…and the amazing feats of juggler Bruce Sarafin were out of this world!  He juggled fire while on a 3-tiered unicycle!

We also had the chance to listen to live music, watch a portraitist in action, get our faces painted, and balloon animals made!

Our Museum Educators will be out at RAM this Saturday at the Creativity Corner, facilitating a crayon resist watercolor project based on the St. Johns River.  Stop by to get your FREE admission coupon to use any time in the next three months!
