Art Together Mornings is a series of monthly, FREE memorable mornings where adult and child create side-by-side! Each project is designed to fully engage all ages and stages; parents get their hands dirty enjoying the materials, while being guided with tips on supporting their young artists’ creativity. Each adult-child group takes home whatever they make as a keepsake of their special morning. Through the Art Together Mornings series, families explore a variety of activities and feel the benefits of the unique experience of focused time spent creating together.
Art Together Mornings is led by Bridget Matros, Waterfall Art’s Youth & Family Outreach Coordinator. Matros came to Waterfall Arts with over 15 years of teaching art at every level and setting — from preschool circle-time to computer literacy classes for the elderly. A practicing artist herself, Matros developed and grew the Art Studio exhibit and program at the Boston Children’s Museum, is a published advocate for quality creative development in early childhood education, and has been deemed one of 21 “young leaders in arts education” by Harvard scholars.
The Youth & Family Outreach Program is made possible by local business sponsors The Green Store and the Belfast Co-op. Additional support is provided by foundations such as the Kennedy Family Foundation, Morten-Kelly Charitable Trust, the Nellie Leaman Taft Foundation, and the Maine Arts Commission, as well as individual donors.
