One event on March 30, 2019 at 12:00 pm
Now in its 7th year, Art Making Day is a FREE two-day event that promotes the ability to educate and connect the entire community through various forms of creative expression. Parents, grandparents, teenagers and children…there is not a soul too old nor too young. Bring your family and make art to hang at the upcoming Art All Night, or just participate in fun art activities! All ages and skill levels welcome! Materials provided!
On March 23, 12-4pm, Artworks invites you to our 40-foot-high sky lit facility to kick off the first day of artistic fun with interactive murals, upcycled projects, and a whole lot more! Be sure to return to Trenton for day two, Saturday, March 30 where we are excited to be partnering once more with the New Jersey State Museum and the Trenton Free Public Library, as well as welcoming the newest site to Art Making Day – The Boys & Girls Club Centre St. Clubhouse. Each of these locations in partnership with Artworks Trenton will be hosting a variety of free art activities which celebrate imagination and encourage creative exploration. Check back soon to see a list of activities available on both days.
Art Making Day is a community event made possible through funding from The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, I Am Trenton Community Foundation, New Jersey State Council on the Arts, Roma & Investors Bank Foundations, and Janssen Pharmaceuticals; generous donations from Ray & Kelly Ingram and LoriAnn Azzari; and in partnership with The Boys & Girls Club Centre Street Community Center, the New Jersey State Museum, Sprout U School of the Arts, and Trenton Free Public Library.
