The Art Festival of Henderson will have a new feature this year just for budding artists.
There will be an area dedicated to allowing children to explore their imaginations through art. The Imagination Station will feature interactive art projects designed for little hands and growing imaginations.
There will be painting lessons, a giant recycled soda can mural, make and take Mother’s Day gifts, Henna artists and a yoga studio. The festival is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 12 and Sunday, May 13 at the Henderson Events Plaza, 200 S. Water Street.
Admission to the festival is free. Some of the booths and activities will require a fee.
There is also a chalk art contest. The city is currently taking applications for the competition. Cash prizes will be awarded in two categories: student and adult. There will also be a People’s Choice award. Artists interested in the competition must submit a sketch of the artwork by Friday, May 4.
