Granby Artist's Family Fun Day

Need to chase the last of those winter blues away? Then join the Granby Artists as they host a Family Fun Day on Saturday, March 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., rain or shine at the Holcomb Farm Learning Center in West Granby, CT. Six members of the Granby Artists Association will demonstrate and share their skills in a variety of artistic media.

Jewelry artists Anne Dixon and Lori Garcia will make "found object" jewelry pieces. Artist Laura Eden will demonstrate watercolor techniques. Artist Sally Melrose will present a hand weaving demonstration, with a small loom set up for people to try. Comic artist Matt Ryan will do caricatures and show how he designs his comic book pages. Artist Bill Simpson will let budding artists experience applying oil paint to canvas.

This is a wonderful opportunity for families and individuals to come out and take part in the arts in Granby and learn a little about the process that is involved in the various media presented. The event is free and open to the public and will be held indoors. All ages are welcome to participate.

The Holcomb Farm Learning Center is at 113 Simsbury Road, West Granby, 860-844-8616.
