Interactive Art Expo at the Yarmouth Clam Festival

July 21, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Come play with us Friday, July 21st and Saturday, July 22nd at the Interactive Art Expo, brought to you free of charge by Artascope and the Bickford Education Center. Try your hand at gel printing, wire-wrapped seaglass key chains, wet felting, and beaded ornaments. All ages are invited to experience the uplifting and stress relieving effects of making art.

When you attend your favorite Clam Festival venues, be sure to take a quick walk down Main Street and visit our Art Expo at the Village Green Park next to the Bickford Truck Collection Pavilion. Artascope instructors will give demos on upcoming classes and workshops, including watercolor, metalsmithing, acrylic painting, and painting silk scarves.

We will have a family art table where you and the kids can sit down and get creative with Make & Take projects, such as wet felted soap, gel printed cards, a wire-wrapped seaglass key chain, and a beaded ornament.
