Ignite your imagination this summer at Annisquam Arts!
Seven weeklong workshops reveal the diverse traditions of art around the world. This Cape Ann summer studio is the perfect setting for your child to express and explore their creativity.

Developed by artist and educator Dawn Southworth, Annisquam Arts tips off its 23rd season by offering a variety of workshops young artists. Conducted at Dawn’s open and professional home studio on Goose Cove, we have easy access to Gloucester’s cultural center and Cape Ann’s most scenic spots. The entire program runs for seven weeks, June 26 – August 10, with new courses each week.

Young Artists’ Summer Studio Workshops run Monday through Thursday, 9:00am – 1:00pm for ages 6-14. We’ll have a blast engaging with a wide range of materials and artistic techniques in a multi-sensory studio environment. Small class sizes and individual instruction allow for all levels of ability to be nurtured. All classes are led by Dawn with assistance from Haley Stevens and a few helpers.

For two weeks this summer, Dawn is teaming up with Courtney Kelly to offer Afternoon Specialty Workshops. Together, the morning and afternoon workshops provide an exciting full day option for those students who desire a longer day of artmaking fun!
