Children and youth can enjoy chalk easel art drawing, painting by numbers, sand art, canvas art stations, and DIY jewelry art.
ArtWalk Homestead was born out of the passion of its creators to cultivate an atmosphere to converge art, community and great food all while giving back to the communities in which they serve.
The purpose of Artwalk Homestead is to raise funds for the annual community event, Art Walk Homestead’s Art in the Park, which takes place in May of each year.
Art Walk Homestead’s Art in the Park brings various community-based organizations to residents of Homestead during a free fun-filled day of art, music, and games. The event provides residents with access to community services such as The Children’s Trust, The Early Learning Coalition, and FarmShare to name a few.
The event is also a vehicle to generate funds to support non-profit organizations serving the residents of Homestead and the surrounding community. All the profits from Artwalk Homestead are donated to local non-profit organizations. This year proceeds will be donated to four local schools, five performing arts programs and two local artists
The festival seeks to use art as an economic and cultural generator for Homestead, fundraise for schools, and provide resources to support parents throughout the school year.
