Free Outdoor Art Series Continues Sunday

WHERE: Hunterdon Art Museum, 7 Lower Center Street, Clinton

Join us this Sunday (June 22) from 1 to 4 PM for our next Katherine Trubek Sundays on the Terrace event. This free family-friendly event encourages everyone to enjoy an afternoon creating beautiful works of art on our terrace. This time, we'll be making scenic landscape collages.
This series honors Katherine Bell Trubek (1904-1991), one of the artist founders of the Hunterdon Art Museum. Her art is currently on display in our Artist Founders of the Hunterdon Art Museum show. 

Future Katherine Trubek Sundays on the Terrace events are June 29; July 13, 20, 27; Aug. 10, 24; Sept. 7, 21; Oct. 5, 19. All events run from 1 to 4 PM. This series is supported by a gift from the Trubek family.

Summer Camp Kicks Off Next Week!

The first week of our "Follow Your Art" summer camp for kids begins next Monday (June 23). and we've got a terrific slate of classes lined up for the next two months. The camp is for children ages 4 to 15 with morning sessions from 9 AM to noon and afternoon camps from 1 to 4 PM. Some camps run a full day and a supervised lunch is available. Camps are taught by the best instructors around: artists and educators, professional storytellers, book and fiber artists, classroom and enrichment teachers.

Here's a few highlights for our first week:

  • Mix it up: Paint, Clay, Fiber (Week 1; June 23-27, morning and afternoon): Create astounding two- and three-dimensional art with paint and clay, plus soft materials such as felt, fabrics, and stuffing. Kids can make a masterpiece or create a plush toy. Morning class is taught by Donna Lish; afternoon by Nancy Miller. Ages 4 to 6.
  • Colorworks (Week 1; June 23-27 afternoon): Explore the power of color! Painter Vasily Kandinsky said that “color is the keyboard…and the artist is the hand that plays.”  Learn the basics about colors and then experiment with different types of media such as paint, pastels, watercolor, clay, fabric arts and more. Ages 4 to 6.
