Join Us for Our 9th Annual FREE Community Day: HAM IT UP!

Our annual HAM IT UP event is a celebration of imagination, creativity, and community – all wrapped up in a FREE afternoon of unforgettable fun for the whole family (all ages welcome)!

🎨 Abstract Painting Extravaganza:

Dive headfirst into a world where colors dance and shapes sing! Inspired by exhibiting artist Cynthia Carlson, this is your chance to unleash your inner artist. Create stunning abstract paintings that go beyond the canvas, exploring the profound meanings of shape and color in a way you’ve never imagined.

📖 Folded Paper Book Magic

Ever dreamt of crafting your own book? Here’s your shot! Learn the art of bookmaking with techniques that trace back to Cynthia Carlson’s current exhibition at HAM, Serious Play. Fold, bind, and create a book that tells your story, handmade by you, for you.

✂️ Creative Word Collages

Be inspired by exhibiting artist Kate Dodd and her use of encyclopedia pages for sculpture. Transform repurposed book pages and assorted materials into a breathtaking collage that speaks volumes, blending texture, color, and typography into a narrative that’s uniquely yours.

🌿 Plein Air Drawing Adventure

Breathe in the fresh air and draw out your heart on our terrace, guided by HAM’s expert instructor Lena Shiffman. Capture the essence of Clinton’s landscapes and infuse your sketches with the vibrancy of nature.

…And That’s Just the Beginning!

Prepare for an afternoon filled with even more surprises – from capturing laughter with caricatures to finding your zen with yoga, plus other activities that will leave the whole family inspired and buzzing with creativity.
