Calling all Artists to the 3rd Annual Merchantville Art Walk. This year’s Art Walk will take place on May 1st, 6:00-9:00 p.m. It will be paired with the "First Friday“ market events in town. What is an Art Walk? Each participating business will share their space with a local artist and the artist’s work will be on display inside of the business for the night. The Art Walk encourages guests to stroll around town and visit each participating business to see, and hopefully, purchase the art. The goal is to benefit Artists AND Businesses. The fee for artists to participate is $25. Application deadline: March 14, 2020. All sales are handled by the artists and are 100% yours. The Eilandarts Center will organize pairing artists with businesses and coordinating the hanging of the show. We will also take care of the website, advertising, flyers, and postcards
Eilandarts Center is delighted to offer a six-week course where your child will learn how to keep and love an art journal, on Wednesdays, beginning November 27th. This workshop will enforce the participant's ability to observe his/her environment and channel creativity into art. During the course, we will collect items and fill up the journal with ideas and samples. There will be projects in drawing, painting, collaging and 3-dimensional. We will talk about different artists and their approach to art. The goal of the workshop is to help the young artist to discover their own creativity and find pleasure applying it into art form. Ages: 5-10 years. Cost: $90. Register online.
