EAC’s Summer Workshop series will be offered virtually this year, and instructors have worked with EAC’s Education & Outreach Director, Alison Brennan, to come up with an array of fascinating projects to be taught online. The series begins June 30 with longtime EAC instructor Sara Myrick’s Beach Fairy House Building Workshop for all ages, at 1 pm.
Next on the schedule is Session One of EAC’s Summer Arts Camp, for children ages 6-13. Led by another longtime EAC instructor, Ann Cannizzaro, the camp, I Wonder with Watercolors, will be held from 10-11 am, July 7, 8 and 9. Click on the workshop names above, or visit our events calendar for full details about these workshops.

Local participants, after registering, will be able to pick up materials packets at the EAC in advance of workshop sessions. Bags will be on the front steps of EAC on specified days, or students may contact Alison for an alternate time/place. Registration fees may be placed in the coffee can provided (and as usual for EAC workshops, a sliding fee scale is available by request).  All Covid-19 precautions will be followed by Alison as she prepares the materials packets wearing a mask and gloves. To register for a workshop, please email registration name, age, phone number and address to alison@eastportartscenter.org.

Please note: Registration deadline for fairy houses is Saturday, June 27. Registration deadline for session one of arts camp (watercolors) is Wednesday, July 1.

If you aren’t local or wish for other reasons to provide your own materials, we hope that you can still join in for these Zoom workshops.  Please email Alison to indicate your interest, and to receive information about signing in to the class.  A registration donation is welcome, but not necessary if you are providing your own materials.

Coming soon in the series are Henna Tattoos with Ashley Hinson-Dhakal on July 14, and Needle Felted Mobiles with Audra Christie on July 21. Series offerings will continue through August, and a second session of Summer Arts Camp, this one led by Sara Myrick, will be offered August 4-6!

Funding for these workshops has been provided by the Belvedere Traditional Handcrafts Fund of the Maine Community Foundation.
