Catch artists in the act of creating on Art Adventure Avenue, a gigantic art studio for you to explore. Discover your inner artists with printmakers, clay sculptors, chalk artists and pumpkin painters! Stand back as the massive steamroller prints amazing works for art, transform clay from a lump to a bowl, discover your inner artist with painting a pumpkin. Fun for all ages!
Stand back! Prepare to see several thousand pounds of raw machine muscle create stunning art work right on the street, right in front of you. Some of Central Oregon finest artists will be expanding the dimensions of their typical printmaking boundaries onto relatively massive expanses of paper. This is big art!
It is indeed magic to see the transformation of clay. Watch Central Oregon ceramic artists in action as they transform a lump of clay into a realistic or whimsical sculpture, or a beautiful piece of pottery as they demonstrate their skill at the potter’s wheel.
