Arts & Crafts


Our friends from the Fox River Academy of Music and Art will be at the GreenFest again this year to make fun and beautiful creations from recycled objects.  They always have a busy booth, with kids crowding around to make original art from other people’s cast-off junk.  We welcome artists who bring their own imagination to life with natural materials, reclaimed materials, and art with nature themes.
