Chestertown River Arts/ Sandbox
January 25, 2015
RiverArts has long been a fan of Washington College’s SANDBOX grant and activities and is teaming up in February for a collaboration with SANDBOX for a series of kids and family classes at KidSPOT on Saturday afternoons with intern Trish Valerio and distinguished visiting artist, Jeni Wightman to engage children in activities that integrate art and the environment.
Among the planned activities are a scavenger hunt and the construction of a trash totem. Come to one or participate in all of the classes which will be free of charge. On February 7, the class led by Wightman will run from 2:00 to 4:00 whereas on February 14, 21 and 22, the classes led by Valerio will run from 1:00 to 3:00.
Wightman is also opening a show First Friday at the Sandbox Studio that will feature three living mud paintings which will continue to grow in the Studio over the next few months. Also on display will be large photographic prints of some of her previous paintings. The SANDBOX Studio is generally open from 10 – 4 during the week and in the mornings on Saturdays.
