The Friends of the St. Augustine Amphitheatre (FOSAA) invite the arts community to be a part of “The Gathering of Friends Children’s Arts Festival” on June 21, 2014 at the Amphitheatre. This completely interactive event will allow children to explore their own creativity while showcasing the diversity of the local arts community. It will be advertised throughout Florida and surrounding states and will be free to the public. The festival is funded in part by an ACH grant from the TDC. This is a unique opportunity for the arts community to showcase their talents and publicize private lessons, camps and workshops while engaging children in a variety of arts activities
Each artist or arts organization will have a designated space to offer a unique interactive experience. Whether taking part in a drum circle, dancing, creating a collage, painting, playing an instrument, or engaging in storytelling, children will be introduced to a variety of art forms that will hopefully inspire and encourage them to pursue new interests..
