the project

Winter Wonderland Family Fun Day: A Joyful Celebration was created to give families an option to do something fun during the winter months.  It also gives them an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of arts and creativity in children and families. Not only can kids explore their imagination, but parents can tap into theirs too.  Since 2014, we have had the pleasure of being a place where friends connect, and family bonding occurs through various art forms.  

The value of Art is essential and has the power to positivity impact lives.  Unfortunately, art programs are one of the first programs to be cut due to lack of funding.   Local community and national programs like the NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) and NEH (National Endowment for the Humanities) are in constant jeopardy of being drastically cut or eliminated.  Our community events highlight the importance of the arts.  We are a premier place for families to attend that may have limited resources.   Here are some major benefits that art provides:

  • Healing
  • Exploration
  • Expanded Imagination
  • Reduced stress and anxiety
  • Community and Family Unity
  • Relaxation 
  • Expression
  • Confidence
  • Freedom

We will continue planting seeds of love, hope, and creativity. Thank you for helping us Keep Art Alive.

why we're doing it

My love and passion for the arts began as a little girl.  The beauty of imagination has the power to change lives.  Winter Wonderland: A Joyful Celebration was created to impact lives through the art of creativity.  Since its inception, we have been a platform for new artists wanting to showcase their artwork and a bridge uniting various cultures.  In addition, it is a day where families can disconnect from technology and connect through the world of ingenuity. Art is everything.  And we are proud to be a premier community event where people and repeat attendees from all over Northeast Ohio come out to celebrate creativity.  It has been rewarding to help keep art alive through our Annual events and other programs.
