Celebrate the arts on Saturday at the Arsenal Center for the Arts at the free Open Arts Day.
The day will include live music, art and theater workshops. The family-friendly, free event takes place on Saturday, May 2, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The drop-in open house features visual and performing arts workshops taught by the skilled arsenalARTS & Watertown Children’s Theatre staff.
Participants can experiment with Clay (handbuilding and pottery wheel), Printmaking, Mixed-media and other art activities for the whole family. This year’s event will also feature a very special outdoor Steamroller Printing Project where artists will carve printmaking plates, ink them up, and then roll over them with an industrial steamroller, donated for the day by the Watertown Department of Public Works, create Relief print masterpieces!
Watertown Children’s Theatre will present workshop performances of two student-written plays selected by a panel of local judges, as well as an encore performance of The Main Street Kids’ Club: A MathStart Musical, which had its Boston Premiere at the Arsenal Center in March. In addition, there will be a costume photo booth, songwriting workshop, and other fun family activities. Watertown Children’s Theatre and New Repertory Theatre will also reveal their 2015-16 season.
