Artist Harvest update – August 2015

art class camp and workshops for kids njIn May we were part of Livingston Family Fun Day, a fantastic town wide event. Our Artist Harvest large-scale installation project was part of the Food Day area, encouraging the appreciation of healthy fruits and vegetables – and art.   Thanks to Stacey Rubinstein, Alan Karpas and the Livingston DPW for making everything happen and run so smoothly.the messy artist artist harvest

Splattering many colors of paint on the pepper on a perfect spring day brought smiles to everyone who did it. We were overjoyed at how receptive the town and families were to our project.

Starting in September, Livingston Town Hall, Livingston Library, and Livingston Community Center will be the display locations.

Vincent Van Gogh Bananas is almost finished, and the peach and pear are up next. Stay tuned for more updates and information on the exhibition!nj best kids art class nj kids art class art classes for children new jersey
