Calling our youngest Addams-esque artists!
This August we are bringing back our wildly popular opportunity for local Wednesdays and Pugsleys to have their art become part of this year's AddamsFest.
Cats, elephants and birds grace the art of both Charles Addams and Edward Gorey. But so do dragons, a boggerslosh, and other beasts of the night too terrifying to name. In this four-day workshop, instructors from Have a Nice Clay, a new ceramic and clay studio opening soon in Westfield, NJ, will teach aspiring artists to create their own curious creatures in clay.
Finished works will be displayed alongside whimsical and wicked animals featured in original Charles Addams cartoons and Edward Gorey illustrations during AddamsFest’s art exhibit:
Charles Addams and Edward Gorey
Weekends, October 13-29
Teaching Artist: Have a Nice Clay
Have a Nice Clay is Westfield NJ’s newest ceramic and clay studio, opening in Fall 2023. Catering to artists of all ages, the studio features workshops and open sessions in pottery making, painting, glass fusing and more. Have a Nice Clay is also a destination for private parties and public events, including birthday parties, girls’ nights, and their signature Karaoke Clay or Paint and Sip Nights.
The best part?
Finished works will be displayed alongside original Charles Addams cartoons and Edward Gorey illustrations during AddamsFest’s art exhibit, WILD, from October 13-29.
This workshop has extremely limited space, with registration currently open. Westfield class location will be provided prior to camp week.
We can't wait to host the next generation of local artists for this uniquely AddamsFest event and share their creations with the community!
