Messy Art Night

Messy Art Night at Essex Elementary School, February 10, 2017

Come to this once-a-year event sponsored by the Essex PTO and meet local artists as they share their crafts with hands-on projects designed for kids. There will be opportunities to work with paint, sculpture, clay, printmaking, wood and more. Join the fun in the school cafeteria. This is a free event.

Two goals for Messy Art night are:

  • To publicize the vibrant art world in and around Cape Ann
  • To inspire Essex residents to create their own art by trying a variety of artistic mediums and techniques.

All of the festivities will be held in the cafeteria and hallways of Essex Elementary School. 200 + people are expected to attend and will have plenty of room to move freely from station to station talking with artists and trying out a variety of art techniques.

Hosted by the Essex Elementary PTO, this night provides hands-on opportunities for children to explore many varied types of art mediums.

2016 Artists included:
