NORTH FORK – Are your kids at home with “nothing to do” now that summer is here? The Greater North Fork Art Gallery invites you to bring them over for free art lessons.
Have them take a break from video games and learn the how-to’s of watercolor painting, photography, weaving, jewelry making, beading, note card production and much more.
Every weekend, classes are from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and the Gallery is open for viewing from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This Saturday, June 21, Ruth Rosenthal – Writer of Prose and Poetry Extraordinaire – will be the docent and is always more than happy to share readings of her works as well as discuss the writing process and even how to publish your work, Just being with this enormous talent is a delight.
Then on Sunday, June 22, jewelry designer Dee Shafer will be sharing her craft. Dee will teach earring making between noon and 2:30 p.m. Kits with everything you need will be available for purchase or bring your own beads and findings. All necessary tools will be provided. Observers are also welcome.
After closing for the season in October, 2013, the Greater North Fork Art Gallery was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation by the North Fork School Parent Teacher Group for its “contributions to our community and children.” Well those contributions continue, as every weekend the Gallery Artists continue to give back to their community by hosting these FREE interactive art lessons.
If your kids are at home with nothing to do on weekends but text, get them over to the Gallery where they can broaden their horizons. Sure beats video games! Also, you may buy art or pick up a quick card or gift. Even if there is no docent present, there are instructions inside the Galley on how to make a purchase – just bring your checkbook. The Gallery Artists thank you for your support!
