Workshops & Events
Learning and experiencing art is what we at Artsworth do. By providing unique workshops to our community members, whether they are children, teenagers, or adults, we are able to open the doors to creativity and show all who wish to learn about the beauty of crafting high quality work with your hands and heart. Workshops are held at 25 Pine Street and range from learning about how to manipulate molten glass to how to solder metal to how to sculpt out of clay or fiber. Our goal is to remain open to suggestions and ideas of how to meet the interests and needs of our community by providing a space for all teachers to share their craft with students of all ages. We hope that if you have a great idea that you wish to share with others, that you will come to Artsworth, share our space and share with us. Below you will find a list of current offerings: check back as our list is always changing! Teach a workshop!

Downeasters, the Maine Arts Commission is coming to YOUR community or region this winter. Our Arts Iditarod 2018 will feature Commission staff braving the elements to travel to four of the state's eight tourism regions in January and February. Why? As we implement our five year Cultural Plan, we've got a lot to talk about, to hear from you, and to deliver as promised! This winter's Iditarod will include three 40-minute workshop intensives for your professional development: Cultural Tourism Readiness/Destination Marketing; Strategic Planning for Artists and Arts Organizations; and How to Be and Build a Better Board. Plus whatever you bring to the table! These meetings are free and open to the public, and we hope to see you at one of them.

Saturday, August 11, 10–5 P.M.
This show will take place in and around the grounds of the Neighborhood House in Northeast Harbor. The curators, Jodie Aragona and Linda Perrin, have selected approximately thirty distinguished artisans in a variety of mediums to participate. Many of the exhibitors are quite local, while some are from other parts of ME, MA, NY, PA, RI, etc...
With the help of the Neighborhood House's beauty, we create a simple direct marketplace where artisans bring their wares and meet their audience face-to-face. This show has a relaxed and elegant atmosphere, with no admission charge. Join us on Thursday evening for a delightful wine and cheese opening.
