Cottonwood Art Festival
  • ArtStop Children's Area

    For the mini-Monet’s, ArtStop is the festival's colorful, interactive children's area. Staffed by more than 100 volunteers, ArtStop creates a hands-on world of art with life-size paint brushes and dozens of activities irresistible to any child. Let your imagination run free as you decorate your own Cottonwood Crazy Cool Cap, throw mud on a pottery wheel guided by ArtStop's own master potters, or be an artist for a day at a Canvas Classic easel.

    Other ArtStop activities for young children include Chalk Board Easels, Chisel Away (chip and sculpt on a large blocks of plaster) and Magnetic Masterpieces (create a picture by adding objects to large magnetic boards).
