This Sunday, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia will be combining a variety of musical and artistic activities for the kiddies as part of their Children's Festival celebrating International Children's Day.

The 10th annual gallery-wide festival is titled "Art Beat" and will explore how music and rhythm make us creative. A diverse group of performers will be on hand all day. Starting at 11am, a group of All Nations drummers will play traditional songs and chants, while a Symphony Nova Scotia brass quintet will perform at 1:30pm during an interactive workshop called "Pop Goes the Easel!" as part of a partnered event. There will also be painting and instrument-making workshops hosted by artists-about-town Sherry Lynn Jollymore and everyone's favorite Pastoralian Mitchell Wiebe. (Will he wear the Dweebo outfit? We hope so.)

The Festival runs from 11am to 5pm and all activities are free with the cost of admission. ($12 for adults, $5 for youth between six and 17 years old, free for children under the age of five, and $30 for families (max. 2 adults and 3 youths.) For more info check out the AGNS website.
