Trenton’s downtown art center and three partner organizations will open their doors to all for two days of free art activities on March 7 and 14. For toddlers, grandparents, and everyone in between, Art Making Day is a free event that promotes the idea that entire communities can be connected and uplifted through various forms of creative expression.
Hundreds of children and adults are expected to attend Art Making Day and explore the assorted “art stations” set up through Artworks Trenton, the Boys & Girls Club Centre Street Clubhouse, the Trenton Free Public Library and the New Jersey State Museum over two weekends.
Artworks aims to convert its 40-foot-high sky lit facility into an art making playground where visitors imaginations are welcome to go wild. Activities range from mural painting and collage to art made from bike parts and upcycled materials. Door prizes will be waiting at Artworks’ facility filled with tools to inspire all ages to think outside the box.
Art Making Day is a community event made possible through funding from The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, I Am Trenton Community Foundation, New Jersey State Council on the Arts, Roma & Investor’s Bank Foundations, and Janssen Pharmaceuticals; generous donations from Ray & Kelly Ingram and LoriAnn Azzari; and in partnership with The Boys & Girls Club of Mercer County | Trenton, the New Jersey State Museum, Sprout U School of the Arts, and the Trenton Free Public Library.
