The festival, which runs through the weekend, offers art enthusiasts an opportunity to watch art demonstrations and chat with the artists.

Matthew Scherer, 10, of Arlington Heights liked the art show. "It's really good," he said while chowing down on nachos and watching Nick Galatte of Monee shape a piece of glass into a work of art.

Matthew said he bought three photographs of sharks for his bedroom.

Linda Rosen, arts commission chairwoman, said, "Despite the rain, people seem to be enjoying the festival."
