Four new outdoor music and art fests are set for this summer in Dallas, Wisconsin on the second Saturday of the month from June-September. Engage in the Arts will have live music, art shows, art demonstrations, and art classes for your enjoyment.
Join in the fun and let your creativity flow! At Engage in the Arts, people are encouraged to become active participants in the art experience. Take a class, watch an art demonstration, talk with an artist, or listen to the music. Engage in the arts firsthand and gain a deeper appreciation for the arts whether it is for Painting, Drawing, Ceramics, Jewelry, Metals, Photography, Fiber Arts, Writing, Music, or Dance.
Engage in the Arts will be held from 12-5PM next to Valkyrie Brewing Company. The taproom will be open, but also look for Valkyrie's beer booth and Jen's Choppin' Block's food booth on the fest grounds. Engage in the Arts is sponsored by Valkyrie Brewing Company and Evolving Colors Art Studio.

OPEN PARTICIPATION ART FUNDRAISER FOR SCHOLARSHIP AT UWEU-BC
There will be an Open Participation Art Project at each of the four Engage in the Arts Festivals at which a large canvas will be set out with brushes and acrylic paints for people to take turns expressing their creativity through painting on the canvas for $1 for 10 minutes. Because this is an open participation art project where different people may contribute to the art piece, the painting will continue to change and evolve throughout the day. The painting will then be auctioned off and all the money raised will go towards a Scholarship in the Arts at UWEC-Barron County.
