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 22nd 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 27 – August 11, with new courses each week.

Young Artists’ Summer Studio Workshops run Monday through Thursday, 9:00am – 1:00pm.
