SCENES FROM THE LAST NIGHT OF OPEN STUDIO LOBSTER TRAP TREE BUOY PAINTING AND WHY WE LOVE CAPE ANN ART HAVEN!
Thank you to Cape Ann Art Haven’s program director Cathy Kelley and executive director Traci Thayne Corbett for the invitation to photograph this year’s Lobster Trap Tree lighting and buoy painting. The joy was all mine–the children’s enthusiasm, the pride and joy on their faces, the parent’s participation, and the priceless gift of community spirit make this one of Cape Ann’s most cherished (and most fun) holiday traditions. And it has been wonderful to see how conscientiously Traci and Cathy run the program and how caring and thoughtful they are with the children.
Did you know that Cape Art Haven buoy painting is 100 percent FREE and open to the entire community?
What has become a much beloved Cape Ann tradition is a way of saying thank you from Art Haven to the community. If you haven’t already done so, please consider donating to this tremendously worthwhile organization. Not only is buoy painting free, but all the programs Art Haven offers are available to everyone, whether or not they have the ability to pay. Visit the Cape Ann Art Haven website here to learn more about classes, scholarships, the teen guild, and more.
Lobster Trap Tree lighting Saturday, December 9th, at 4:30. Party after at Art Haven.
