The fair will also feature a free children's art activity center presented by the Toledo School for the Arts.  TSA students will help children with a variety of craft projects perfect for all ages. Face painting will also be offered free of charge.
Adjacent to the children's area TSA Artisan's Guild will have a booth of items for sale created by students in this year's summer program. Children's  activities will be offered Saturday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The fair is produced by The Guild of Artists & Artisans, a non-profit association, the same group behind the prestigious Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair.
According to: Debra "Max" Clayton, Guild executive director: "The Guild's mission is to help cultivate an appreciation for unique hand crafted artwork. The art fair is a special opportunity for art lovers to meet the artists in person and learn more about their inspiration and their process. Knowing the artist gives the art purchase special meaning. In addition we find that both the artists and fair-goers are drawn to the pleasant atmosphere of The Town Center. It offers an ideal ambiance for an art fair of this caliber and makes for a wonderful day for the entire family."
