Balloon art is a major part of many entertainers' repertoires. At FAVE, we strive to bring you the industry's top balloon instructors. Take your art to the next level by attending the many different categories of balloon classes we offer at FAVE. From very beginner to master classes, we cover every level for you to learn from. So, wherever you are in your career, there is always something to learn at FAVE!
Every year we bring in a recognized face painting instructor to give you the opportunity to learn from the best. Classes range from beginning to advanced levels. Painters are encouraged to meet up for face painting jams. Come get your paint on!
Our Juniors program is one of the best in the country. Juniors classes cover performance, magic, puppetry, face painting, and balloon twisting, and they have their own competitions. Extra-curricular activities can include a movie, pizza and ice cream, crafts and games. The Theme Party is a big hit with the kids too - you'll find them on the dance floor most of the night!
You'll find classes on just about everything relating to developing or improving your clown persona and skills. From beginners to seasoned clowns, you'll leave with more than you came with, and have a wonderful experience along the way. For those of you who have been clowning for a long time, don't forget the value of your presence and mentorship to those just beginning the journey.
Magic takes center stage at our convention! So many types of entertainers incorporate magic into their acts. That's why the schedule is full of great classes on all kinds of magic. Don't be afraid to jump in as a beginner- we have classes for all levels. Along with learning, you'll be highly entertained as well, as our instructors can't help but be engaging whether they're teaching or performing. The vendor booths provide another opportunity to find great new additions to your show!
