Bailey Burk, a senior at Bowling Green High School, still has the origami flower she made with her dad at the Black Swamp Arts Festival when she was a kid.
She and her family have been coming to the festival and the Youth Arts area, even before they moved to Bowling Green 11 years ago.
Burk and fellow BGHS Senior Studio student Maren Legg are among those who return to the festival each year as volunteers.
“As a volunteer, it is nice to hear, ‘Oh, that was so much fun,’” Legg said. “I get to provide this experience for another child.”
Burk said seeing the kids interact with their parents and grandparents at the Youth Arts area is rewarding.
Both the students hope to help out with the tie-dye station this year, an activity Burk remembers fondly from her childhood.
“The tie-dye was the best place because you would get your hands dirty and it would stay on your hands the whole week,” Burk said.
