Scituate Arts Association Celebrates
“Arts Alive! Weekend”
June 12th & 13th
Call for Artists of all Ages!
Save the weekend of June 12th & 13th to celebrate “Arts Alive” with the Scituate Arts Association! This is the 15th 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, and this year, we will be offering a limited number of plein air kits to children and their families to use and enjoy throughout the summer. All artists, amateur and professional, youths to seniors are invited to participate! We ask that all attendees and viewers be mindful of the current Covid requirements.
For Children and Families: The SAA will be offering a selection of art kits for both elementary and middle school for a modest donation ($5). They will be available in our pop-up tent in the parking slot next to the Gallery from Noon-3 on Saturday (Sunday rain day).
For all Plein air painters/artists:
