Scituate Arts Association Celebrates

 “Arts Alive! Weekend” June 8th and 9th

Call for Artists of all Ages!


Save the weekend of  June 8th & 9th  to celebrate “Arts Alive” with the Scituate Arts Association!  This is the 13th year that the SAA, a Scituate based nonprofit arts association which supports the Front Street Gallery, the Ellis House Studio and provides art classes, workshops and educational opportunities for the community at large, has offered this event. Activities include Plein Air [Open Air] painting around Scituate Harbor, a Wet Paint Show, a Front Street Art Gallery “New Members Show,” and this year we are once again offering Children’s and Family Plein Air on the grounds of the Scituate Library.   All artists, amateur and professional, youths to seniors are invited to participate!

            For families & children:  Plein air or open air painting simply means painting outside and connecting with the great outdoors.  So pack water bottles and snacks, a folding chair and join us.  Bring your only painting supplies or we’ll provide some paper, paint, water and brushes from 9:30 to 11:00. Current plan is to meet and paint on the grounds around the Scituate Library. Advance registration is request. Sign up online by going to the Library’s Event Calendar or go to the Circulation Desk for help.  Children under 12 must have a parent or responsible adult accompany them.  And parents/responsible adults are welcome to bring their own art supplies and join in as well.
