A 3D chalk artist will join local groups to add to the colour, fun and creativity as part of this year's Childers Festival.
To be held on Saturday, 24 July, Millennium Park will transform into a hub of crafty workshops for the whole family to get involved in.
The festivities begin with “Art in the Park” activities offered by the Childers Visual Arts Group with signs then leading to amazing chalk creations and other events throughout the street.
Creative Producer Wendy Zunker from Creative Regions said the free events would offer up an opportunity to become inspired by various art mediums, catering to all ages and abilities.
“We have circus performers running “give it a go” workshops from 10 am to noon with plenty of hula-hoops, juggling and plate spinning fun to be had,” she said.
“You can also help us weave a giant spider web.
“The Childers Neighbourhood Centre and IDSS have been running workshops to make butterflies, lizards and artworks to be discovered along the garden path and the Childers Visual Arts group is adding a surprise element to their participation.”
Wendy said the Crescent Street end of the park would feature “make and take” craft activities, including origami.
In the evening, the park will transform with effects lighting and animation projections created by Goodwood State School students and community members.
“This will be a fantastic day of community art for everyone to get involved in,” Wendy said.
“You can be young or young at heart to join in”
3D chalk artist joins Childers Festival
Zest International Events artist Dom Intelisano is a whiz at bringing his chalk drawings to life and will be part of the festivities through Millennium Park to Crescent Street.
Dom creates life-sized 3D drawings on concrete paths and walls that passers by can engage with.
Not only will the chalk artist offer up the opportunity for the public to help him with his creations in Crescent Street, but a special chalk drawing will also be unveiled as part of the festival.
“Dom will encourage you to grab some chalk from the pile and help complete his work,” Wendy said.
“Make sure you bring your camera and be part of the interactive fun!”
