BELFAST - Waterfall Arts is holding its annual February School Vacation Art Camp for 8 to 12 year olds from Feb. 19 to 22. The focus of the camp is “Sketcher's Studio”.
In this art camp young artists will take their favorite and most familiar standby - drawing - to the next level. Instructor Bridget Matros said, “Bringing their unique styles and their frustrations along, kids should prepare to overcome drawing angst with four days of learning and practicing tips guaranteed to boost confidence and improve drawing skills - while having fun! Learning to See, the secret of the Pencil Sketch, drawing games and challenges, materials explorations and cropping/presentation will all be covered. Forget the fridge - these artists will no doubt produce at least one piece they deem suitable for framing!”
BELFAST - Waterfall Arts is pleased to invite anyone interested in volunteering to stop by any first and third Wednesday of the month from 2-4 p.m. Volunteer coordinators will be ready to talk about the many volunteer opportunities available at the Belfast location, 256 High Street. If you’re not free on Wednesdays, call to arrange for another time that works for you.
BELFAST – At Waterfall Arts on Friday, August 10, beginning at 7 pm, a number of artists, cohorts and other friends of the late David McLaughlin will talk about his art and share their stories about his work and life in and out of the Liberty Cannery. The panel and open discussion, held in conjunction with the David McLaughlin & the Art of Salvage exhibit, will feature Nina Scott-Hansen, Skip Brack, Jay Sawyer, John Russo, Alan Crichton and others.
McLaughlin was well known as a prolific artist in metal and wood, an ingenious designer and builder, a passionate collector and a creative rigger of all things. His exquisite attention to detail, aesthetic sense and work ethic informed his work in all media as well as his collections of many things, most of them rusty and large, with which he created sculptures, tools, living spaces, vehicles and stoves. He loved to solve practical problems big and small, and many contractors, mechanics and artists consulted him for advice and direction.
BELFAST - Turns out cardboard isn't just for boxes anymore! Waterfall Arts in Belfast is hosting an art show next month called 'Corrugation Nation' which will display pieces of work made mostly out of cardboard. The show organizers say it's a great way to recycle and raise money for the nonprofit's art programs at the same time.
"Cardboard is everywhere and people don't know what to do with it," said Lorna Crichton of Waterfall Arts. "It's going to be an interesting show."
At least 50 percent of each piece of art must be constructed of corrugated cardboard, the kind cardboard boxes are made of rather than paperboard, which cereal boxes are made of. Paint, wood, wire, fiber, glue and other embellishments can be used to enhance the rest of the exhibit.
