Summer Art Opportunities – In Acton and beyond!

As you may have seen, I will be teaching a number of classes through Community Education this summer, via the Summer Escapades program.  Check out below for more information, and print out a registration form here, if you don’t still have your Interaction Summer 2013 Catalog.  Please note the grade levels specified for each class.  
Also, check out further below for art opportunities at area museums and cities!

 deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum
There is a lot going on at the deCordova this summer.  It’s just down the way, about 5 minutes from Walden Pond, in Lincoln, MA.  If you haven’t been to the sculpture park and museum before, why not check it out on the first Wednesday of the month, for free?  Or you can plan to visit for one of the many summer programs.  Options include a visit on Sundays during the summer weekends for one of the many ‘ARTfull’ Explorations.  Or, enroll your child in the Hive, which has a number of the week long art programs, ‘that connect kids to art, ideas, and nature’
Worcester Art Museum
Visit the Worcester Art Museum, during one of the many ‘Free Summer’ programs in July and August.  Visit to participate in the drawing club, Wednesday’s from 1-3pm, or check out here for more information of what will be going on at WAM.  Admission is always free for children 17 and under.  
Museum of Fine Arts – Boston
Vist the Museum of Fine Arts during the summer for free after 4pm on Wednesday’s.  The MFA is also offering a number studio art classes during the summer.  You can search by age level and specific weeks.  Your child can explore specific media, or the museum collections.  One class that caught my eye is ‘Journeys Through Art: Creatures of the MFA/Museum Menagerie’.  
Somerville Artbeat 
July 19 & 20, 2013
Visit Davis Square in Somerville, for Artbeat – 2013, happening on July 19 & 20.  Artbeat is an ‘annual multi-media street party! 
The festival showcases the city’s diverse and vibrant arts
communities’ and is presented by the Somerville Arts Council.  Check out the artbeat website for more information. The website will be updated as the date approaches.
