EMF PARTNERS WITH ST. ALBERT INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN'S FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS
The St. Albert International Children's Festival returns June 1-4, 2023. Cultivating wonder and creativity for youth for over four decades, the International Children’s Festival of the Arts has transported kids to another world and provided them with countless awe-inspiring experiences. Through world-class programming in music, dance and theatre, as well as literary, visual and circus arts, we awaken a child’s innate sense of wonder and excitement, as we help them to explore what’s possible.
"These collaborations are so important and help to develop the next generation of artists in Alberta. The mentorship program will give students a real look at the path of a professional artist, combining in-class lessons with hands-on mural painting will provide a robust learning experience for these aspiring student artists." - Marcus Coldeway - Edmonton Mural Festival Organizer
The Festival and EMF
The Edmonton Mural Festival team is working with the City of St. Albert to showcase a live mural at the ICF Festival. The festival will also feature a mural painted by St. Albert arts students. The students will be involved in the main mural idea creation and be mentored by the mural artists and the EMF team as they work to complete their own mural at the festival.
