Drawing Enrichment Workshop (Ages 6-11)

Young artists working develop their natural ability, improve their skills and explore new techniques as they learn the fundamentals of Drawing. Students discover a variety of wet and dry media such as pencil, charcoal, oil and chalk pastels as well as watercolors while they sketch, shade, use perspective and the color wheel. Projects created from life and the imagination include portraits, landscapes, still lifes, optical illusions and more! Participants are inspired by the work of Paul Cezanne, Bridget Riley and Pablo Picasso.

Painting Enrichment Workshop (Ages 6-11)
Students create realistic pieces or use their imagination as they explore the traditional technique of painting using non-toxic acrylics on a stretched canvas. Young artists produce colorful landscapes, abstractions and still lifes as they discover the basics of composition. Following step by step instructions, participants learn the proper use of paint and how to mix their own colors. Placing the canvas on a table easel is recommended for the full experience!

Pr***en & Teens Drawing and Painting (Ages 12-17)

The Watchung Arts Center is delighted and honored to present two outstanding performers, each at the top of his field on Sunday, January 23 at 3PM. Tony Trischka, “known as the father of modern bluegrass” (New York Times), and Bruce Molsky, “one of the world's premier Appalachian-style fiddlers” (Bloomberg News), will join in this very special performance. There’s some virtuosic and joy provoking common ground in the fusion of Tony Trischka’s bluegrass banjo world view and Bruce Molsky’s new but true to tradition old time southern mountain fiddling and singing. Their new and old songs and tunes showcase the best of each and hearing them together is always a wonderful visit between old friends.

Watchung is one of 52 municipalities that attained certification in 2021 and was honored at the Sustainable Jersey Annual Luncheon in Atlantic City at the New Jersey State League of Municipalities Conference.

“The certified towns exemplify the commitment we need to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world.  As New Jersey faces issues such as the climate crisis, a growing equity divide and environmental pollution, it is essential that we support municipalities as they do the hard work to meet these challenges at the local level,” said Randall Solomon, executive director of Sustainable Jersey.
