Halloween treats for Richmond families

on October 31, 2014

Trick or treat? Halloween is here! Richmond Art Center is treating children to seasonal chills and thrills with its annual family art making event: Skeletonfest. This event was free and open to the public.

Three girls drew scary skulls on paper plates with colorful sugar paint. One girl couldn’t help taste her art work. No surprise. “It tastes like sugar,” she said.

Skeletonfest has been growing. Some 400 kids and adults came to the studio this year to take part in the drawing and painting, said Nicole Kite, education coordinator at Richmond Art Center.

“It is a great way to come and see the studios, meet our teachers, try a little bit art making,” Kite said.

Children and adults from around the East Bay had a grand time, decked out in scary costumes and bearing treats to share.

“We do a variety of things, like sugar skulls, decorate masks, do traditional paper cutting, Mexican flowers,” Kite said.“And this year we do these movable skeletons.”

More kids classes are coming up. A family event on how to use recycled materials to create art will be hosted in the same venue next spring, Kite said.
