The annual Tumbleweeds Festival is March 2-4 at Library Square and the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center.
Kids of all ages are welcome. The festival will show 14 feature films and 3 short programs, but there will also be crafts and activities for kids.
Those behind all of the fun joined us in studio to talk about some of the activities available at the festival’s Clubhouse where children will have a chance to get hands on with different projects.
They can check in with Alex Porpora. She is the STEM Coordinator at Craft Lake City and will be teaching kids how to make their own electric circuits out of paper and incorporate them into their artwork.
Or check out Natalie Allsup-Edwards in the Hand Drawn Photo Booth, a pretend photo booth “machine” operated by a real-live artist. The photo booth can draw anything in reality and from your imagination.
Jenn Blum with Salt Lake City Maker Faire is helping kids learn how our eyes perceive motion, including projects they can make themselves so they can become an optical illusion wizard.
The Clubhouse is open Saturday and Sunday 10am to 5pm.
