Art Making Day returns to downtown Trenton

Artists of all ages, cultures and backgrounds are welcome to fully immerse themselves in the act of creating and revel in the beauty of self-expression at Art Making Day March 23 and 30.

For toddlers, grandparents and everyone in between, Art Making Day is a free event that promotes the idea that entire communities can be connected and uplifted through various forms of creative expression.

Hundreds of children and adults are expected to attend Art Making Day and explore the assorted “art stations” set up throughout Artworks Trenton, the Boys & Girls Club Centre Street Clubhouse, the Trenton Free Public Library and the New Jersey State Museum over two weekends.

Artworks aims to convert its 40-foot-high sky-lit facility into an art-making playground where visitors’ imaginations are welcome to go wild. Activities range from mural painting and collage to art made from bike parts and an upcycled materials. Door prizes will be waiting at Artworks’ facility filled with tools to inspire all ages to think outside of the box.
