Free Open House at Garrison Art Center on April 5

Garrison Art Center announces Try Your Hand, an art open house from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 5. The public is invited to visit studios and participate, free of charge, in a variety of art activities designed to please artists and non-artists alike, from toddlers to seniors.

Try Your Hand workshops will be offered as morning and afternoon sessions with activities ranging from pottery, hand-building in clay, 3D paper creations, and printmaking, to marbling, experimental drawing and painting. Visitors are welcome to stay as long as they like, bring a picnic lunch, and spend time down by the riverside enjoying the view.

In partnership with the Aldrich Museum’s annual Draw On! community event, the open house will include a workshop for all ages, Stamping, Printing, Rolling, to encourage participants to experiment with new ways of making marks using traditional and non-traditional methods.

This open house is made possible, in part, through the Putnam Arts Council’s Arts Link Grant Program with funds from Putnam County. Visit or call 845-424-3960. Garrison Art Center is located at 23 Garrison’s Landing, Garrison.
