"VIVA La Children!" an art festival for the young, will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Brengle Terrace Park in Vista. The event is sponsored by the Vista Initiative for the Visual Arts.
Artwork from kindergarten to high school students will be exhibited, and awards will be presented to the best artists. Hands-on activity booths offer sand painting, calligraphy, printing and collage and are sponsored by local PTAs and youth organizations to allow participants to try out a variety of art media.
In other booths, VIVA artists will demonstrate techniques such as papermaking, sculpting, acrylic and collage, watercolor, silk painting and porcelain painting.
The Art Rig, a mobile museum provided by the San Diego Museum of Art, will be open for free tours. Also, there will be a scavenger hunt, a parade of masks, performance art and many other activities for the whole family.
The festival is free. The event is funded by a grant from the City of Vista Parks & Community Services Department, private donations and corporate sponsors.
