Overlea ArtsFest 2018 will benefit “Nature Connections,” a hands-on art and nature exploration program series for kids and families at the Natural History Society. The Natural History Society offers year-round “citizen science” education programs for all ages including nature hikes, drawing classes, expert lectures and more. Their collection of fossils, insects, animals and minerals dates back to the early 1800s. For more info about the NHS, visit their website at www.marylandnature.org.
The event will also feature exciting live art demos and family art activities of all kinds by local art businesses and community arts centers.
The Juried Art Show will include painting, illustration, sculpture, photography, ceramics and fiber art. Prizes will be awarded for the Best in Show and second place in each category. Attendees can also participate by voting for their favorites with the People’s Choice Awards.
