Parent & Child Art Workshop at CMNH
On Saturday, March 10, nationally known fiber artist and weaver Sarah Haskell will lead a 90-minute creative workshop for children age 7 or older and their parents at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire. Each participating parent/child pair will transform a simple plastic container into a beautiful work of art using textural materials. Pre-registration for this workshop is required.
While most people see things they don’t need anymore as trash, Haskell finds inspiration in found objects that others might throw away. In this workshop at the Children’s Museum, she will invite participants to explore the creative possibilities of everyday objects by focusing on texture, form and color. Everyone will go home with a colorful and unique art object for their home.
Sarah Haskell, a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, has been weaving, teaching and exhibiting her art for over 30 years. She is an active teaching professional throughout New England. She weaves art fabrics, creates mixed media works and leads community weaving projects that literally weave the fabric of communities together.
The cost for each artist workshop is $25 per adult/child pair for museum members and $35 per adult/child pair for non-members. All materials are included. Registration is required by calling the Children’s Museum at 603-742-2002 or families may register at the museum’s front desk.
