ST. PETERSBURG – The 12th annual Painting in the Park got underway last Sunday, April 28 on the north lawn of the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg.

Parents brought their pint-sized artists out to create unique make-and-take crafts based on famous works of art in the MFA collection. Toddlers, tweens and in-betweens created works of art using materials such as cardboard boxes, yarn and even their own feet!

More than 1,500 attendees enjoyed the free community event that featured 13 different art stations, the NOMAD Art Bus, food trucks and an appearance from Tampa Bay Rays’ mascot Raymond Ray. The event was made possible by Kane’s Furniture, Rays Baseball Foundation and Suncoast Credit Union.
