Join us at the Joan Dignam Schmaltz Gallery of Art, our gallery space at the Paul J. Schupf Art Center in downtown Waterville, for our Flowers, Flowers, and More Flowers! activity.
Begin your art journey with a LOOK at the many works of art featuring flowers in the exhibition, Ashley Bryan / Paula Wilson: Take the World into Your Arms. Then, CREATE your own work of art, inspired by one of three different floral arrangements made by Robin’s Nest, using colored pencils, watercolors, markers, oil pastels, and/or collage materials at one of our makers’ stations.
This activity is part of the First Friday, Downtown Waterville program. First Fridays celebrate the vibrant creativity of Waterville by inviting people downtown to engage in multidisciplinary arts experiences. On the first Friday of every month, visit downtown Waterville to meet artists, participate in workshops, listen to live music, eat delicious local food, and come together as a community. To learn more about all the activities happening, visit the Waterville Creates website.
This month’s event also is part of the annual Arts in Bloom Weekend. Explore your creativity with free programs scheduled throughout the weekend, designed by the museum and other community partners in Waterville. This seasonal event is the perfect way to celebrate spring with friends and family! For a complete list of activities, visit the Waterville Creates website.
