Got kids? Artscape's got family fun

Wondering how to keep the kids entertained? No worries. This year's Artscape is as kid-friendly as it comes. Saturday and Sunday will be filled with arts, crafts, stories, magic, juggling, song and dance, all geared to families.

The Family Performance Tent at the University of Baltimore, Gordon Plaza, will showcase kids' songs by Milkshake, puppetry by Beale Street Puppets, African-American tales and drumming by Annansegromma and more.

Make your way to the Main Building Steps at the Maryland Institute College of Art, and catch basketball wizardry by Spencer "Spinny" Johnson; dance, step and positive rapping by B.L.A.C.K. Steppers; and storytelling and music by Jerry Brown.

Want more? At Mount Royal Avenue and Dolphin Street, watch amazing juggling feats and daring stunts by the Unicycling Lady, kids' entertainment by John "The Kinderman" Taylor and others.

See an array of artistic works by children -- from ceramics and puppets to weavings and photography -- on display at the Bright StARTS Tent. Or, if you've got a kid who'd rather "do" than "see," stop by the Arts in Action site at University of Baltimore, Gordon Plaza, for make-it and take-it arts and crafts. Also at Gordon Plaza, kids can build structures with giant interlocking Tyco blocks at the Creation Station.

Want to gently introduce your kids to Shakespeare? Growing Shakespeare & Kids, an all-kid theater troupe, presents Romeo and Juliet at the Decker Auditorium, Maryland Institute College of Art.

The Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall welcomes visitors to a musical petting-zoo event, where kids can get up close and personal with an array of musical instruments and meet the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra members who play them.
