KidsFest to feature Lego Art at Foothills Arts Council

By Beanie Taylor -

KidsFest sponsored by the Foothills Arts Council will take place on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will feature the classic children’s toy, LEGO.

“This year’s KidsFest will feature a LEGO Art Competition and a painting workshop based on artist Stefano Bolcato,” said FAC director Dan Butner, who encouraged those who were “kids at heart” to participate.

In addition to painting landscapes and architectural appreciation, Bolcato is also known for his Inside A Little World series where he “reimagines classic paintings with LEGO figures,” said Butner. Images of this series and other works by Bolcato can be found at

Courtesy of AllStar rentals, a water slide also will be available as well as snow cones to cool off participants.

Other food will be offered at this event, which is free and open to the public and will also include music from the steel drum band, Pandemic.
