Creative Play Workshop for Adults

(In Person)

TUESDAY, JUNE 27, 6:30 – 8:00 PM

Lower Level- Johnson Meeting Room, Amherst Town Library, 14 Main Street, Amherst NH, 03031


      Led by local art educator and 2001 Souhegan High School alumna Emily Hall, this  Creative Play workshop invites participants of all artistic levels to enter a practice of playfulness that provides a relaxing investigation into their innate creativity through the elements and principles of art and design. Participants may openly share their discoveries, reflections, and ideas while connecting to their artistic 'process' of creativity rather than an art 'product'. Take-home materials are offered to support the continuing growth of a creative play practice!

      This is a 90 minute experience to relax and expand your curiosity through art. Explore the elements and principles of art and design, but also slow down and connect to the process of art rather than the art "product."  In-Person Program. Registration Required.

Main Floor - Main Reading Room, Amherst Town Library, 14 Main Street, Amherst, NH 03031


      Using  well known scenes of The Odyssey, celebrated storyteller Sebastian Lockwood delivers the passion and intensity of the great epic that deserves to be heard told as it was by bards in the days of old. Lockwood says, "The best compliment is when a ten-year-old comes up and says, 'I felt like I was there.'" That is the magic of the performance that takes students and adults alike back into the text.

      This event is made possible by a grant from New Hampshire Humanities.
