Making a debut on Armstrong Atlantic State University's stage March 29 is - your child.
The college opens its Fine Arts Hall Courtyard and Auditorium for local families and children to experience, see and buy art.
"There's just an abundance of opportunities for kids to come out, be creative and have fun," said Mario Incorvaia, Armstrong's art marketing director.
The Outdoor Art Show and Children's Art Festival lasts from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is completely free.
"It's a family-friendly art event, fun for the whole family," said Pamela Sears, associate professor of theater at Armstrong.
The day offers different styles of dance, drama, visual art and music.
Make sand art, a mask or a puppet.
Throw a pot on a pottery wheel, or watch a dance.
Hear a band, or play the drums yourself.
Take part in improvisational theater, or role play in a familiar fairy tale.
The event is an art hodgepodge of sorts, ranging from workshops on interactive West African music to choral, ballet and modern dance performances.
Families benefit seeing a range of work, versus visiting one studio and seeing only what one teacher is doing, according to Sears.
"There are a lot of different groups from around the city that are represented," she said.
About a dozen local schools from elementary to high school will perform during the festival.
Armstrong students are also in the mix, adding their theatrical and musical know-how on stage.
Expect excerpts from the hit musical "Godspell," interactive performances and theater games for children from the college students.
The age of children participating at a given time determines what game the Armstrong students play, according to Sears.
The festival began after Tom Cato wanted to create a time to bring together the community, particularly children, through visual and performing arts, according to Incorvaia. Cato heads Armstrong's art, music and theater department.
"I think it also sparks some interest," Sears said.
"For me, the highlights really involve getting to see how excited how kids get (being) involved in art," Incorvaia said.
Adults often lose some creativity that children still possess, according to Incorvaia.
He likes seeing children free to be artistically creative.
Officials set up two performance areas: A small stage outdoors, and a large indoor stage for dance and theater.
Shows outside begin about every 30 minutes, and feature music, theater and dance.
The event is part of the school's Young Artists Series, which features events such as choral arts and band festivals that involve kindergarten through 12th-graders.
Art created by students, faculty and alumni will be for sale. In case of rain, the event moves indoors.
"I think it's a great opportunity to get the family together to experience some exposure to art," Sears said.
"It's just a really fun day," Incorvaia said. "Kids get to come out, and maybe for the first time get to experience the arts."
