Books without Covers - Storytelling with Teresa Clark

Saturday, August 12 • 1pm • Greenbelt Stage

Long before there were book binders and printing presses there were stories and storytellers! Come jump into books without covers with storyteller Teresa Clark. You may be amazed at the mental illustrations your imaginations create.


JJ the Magician

Saturday, August 12 • 2pm • Greenbelt Stage

JJ the Magician is the ultimate party-goer who brings magic to life. His young audience members will help him magically color a book, see things mysteriously change places and float, and assist him with making a live bunny rabbit appear not once, but twice!


The Great Art Relay Race!

Saturday, August 12 • 3pm • Meet at the Greenbelt Stage

Compete, or just have fun trying out, our first ever Great Art Relay Race! Challenges include target practice with paint, drawing while dizzy, and more, including some where your challenge is determined by the toss of a bean bag!
