I just adore Your Toy Portrait, where artist Jennifer Maher creates original paintings of a beloved friend or favorite toy. I have had her paint Finn and Lev's own cherished Doggie and BunBun and she is now hard at work on Jack's Hedgie. She does such an amazing job, so you can understand how excited I was to hear that she was going to be part of SaratogaArtsFest upcoming Kids do Art event at Universal Preservation Hall this Sunday! Jennifer is encouraging kids to bring their favorite toy to the event so they can create their OWN toy portraits with her special help and guidance. I couldn't possibly love this idea even more, what better way to encourage your child's own creativity and help them build their understanding and appreciation of the arts. Their little masterpiece will be something you'll both want to treasure. Have your kiddo choose their special toy and bring them down to try their hand at painting a portrait.
There's even more on Sunday too with SaratogaArtsFest Kids do Art too. Seth and the Moody Melix will be there, kids can do crafts and a clay project, check out puppets with the Children's Museum at Saratoga and so much more!
