Epcot is hosting their 1st International Festival of the Arts. It started January 13th and will run until February 20th, on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays. Throughout the park are exhibits by various artists, with plenty to look at and buy. Disney photographers are out in masse for an amazing addition of life size pictures that you can step into and become part of the famous painting.
The food offerings are artistic and
yummy, both pleasing to look at and taste.
I like the giant cookie that looks like an artist’s palette of paints.
In the evening, they have the Broadway Concert Series to listen and enjoy. There are also seminars and workshops to
learn various things from.
|shhhh don't tell her this is here LOL|
Since it was my mom’s birthday this week, I treated her, Staci, and me to the Artfully Blending Tea workshop with Karon Cannon of the Tea Craze shop here in Kissimmee.
Over the weekend the three of us had created our own mickey ears to Disney bound with. Staci decided to go bounding as the Cheshire Cat, so after the workshop we quickly made our way over to the England Pavilion to meet Alice in Wonderland.
The most fun we have had at the festival though was Figment’s Brush with the Masters Scavenger Hunt. Figment the Dragon is hidden in paintings all over the World Showcase, and you must find him. In each painting, he has either replaced the main image (think Mona Lisa with Figment’s face) or has been incorporated into the painting somewhere.
Only two more weekends left for the festival then all that fun is gone. Hopefully it will become an annual event.
