Hi Joey –
On Saturday May 9, an incredible annual event will fill downtown Gloucester with art, music, theater and dance! The Gloucester Public Schools arts festival is a showcase of student artwork from all of our schools. This year for the first time, Gloucester preschool students will be participating too, making the festival the biggest it’s ever been.
Paintings, drawings and sculptures from students in grades preschool through 12th will be on display all over town. Tons of local businesses have jumped on board and volunteered to display art in their windows and on their walls.
Concerts, drama workshops, dance demonstrations and more will take place all day at City Hall, Cape Ann Museum and Sawyer free library.
A painting project run by West Parish art teacher Paula Morgan will be going on all day at the Cape Ann Museum sculpture park – everyone’s invited to grab a brush and help create giant, colorful, collaborative paintings!
Check out our fun video and the schedule below for more info. The festival is free and open to the public- hope to see you there!
