A popular family-friendly aspect of the annual Telfair Art Fair is the FREE Children’s Art fair, a free event taking place Saturday, November 10th from 10 am to 2 pm.

Bastille Metal Works, the premier manufacturer of custom cast zinc and pewter furnishings in North America, will be sponsoring the Telfair Museums’ Children’s Art Fair in the Square. The Children’s Art Fair in the Square is a part of Telfair Museums’ 18th Annual Telfair Art Fair, which will take place November 10 and 11 in downtown Savannah and Telfair Square. This year’s Art Fair theme, Arte Al Fresco, is inspired by the museum’s upcoming exhibition Offering of the Angels: Paintings and Tapestries from the Uffizi Gallery. The exhibition will feature Italian masterworks from the Renaissance through the Baroque period, and will open on December 7.

The annual Children’s Art Fair is the perfect way to introduce children to Telfair Museums while providing a fun and educational outlet for creating art.  Activities  in the square will include hands-on art projects, such as face painting and Renaissance crafts, plus live performances by Portman’s Music Children’s Group, New Horizons, Savannah Arts Academy’s Skylite Jazz Band, and many more. This year, Telfair Museums will host the WCWM? (what can we make?) inside the education studios in the Jepson Center during the event, which will take place from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday, November 10th.

The outdoor Art Fair will feature approximately 120 artists displaying and selling works in all mediums throughout the weekend, including painting, printmaking, drawing/pastel, digital media, sculpture, jewelry, ceramics/pottery, photography, furniture, glass, textiles/fiber, and mixed media. More than $10,000 in prizes will be awarded to the top artists in their respective fields.

Bastille Metal Works is sponsoring the event to show our dedication to local arts advocacy and education. Many local businesses and non-profits are volunteering their time and resources to get involved with this fun and educational cultural event.
