Messy Art Night
It's time for the forth annual Messy Art Night in Essex on Feb 1st! Last year’s event was a huge success. Over fifteen local artists showed off their work to 150 excited kids and parents, taught them to try new techniques and helped them have fun making their own art. It was amazing!
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.
Confirmed artists include:
- Keri Gavin of Keri Jeanne Photography
