After a very successful inaugural event in 2013, the Madison Arts Sidewalk Gallery will return this spring. We are anticipating another talented group of New Jersey Artists who will participate in this public art exhibition which will be installed Saturday, May 3.
The Madison Sidewalk Gallery is a collaborative project between the Madison Arts & Culture Alliance (MACA) and the Downtown Development Commission (DDC). It is designed to help promote the creative work of local artists, and to recognize Madison as a premier arts destination. This exciting new pubic art project is the first of many new collaborations for Madison and does many things for both the artists and the community.

Week-long sessions for children and young teens begin July 7. This summer there will also be 3 once-a-week classes for teens and adults during the day: Intro to Oil Painting, Mixed Drawing, and Representational Drawing. We will even be having a jewelry making weekend workshop for adults and older teens! All classes address the formal elements of fine arts – line, shape, value, color, light and composition – starting with observation and warm-up sketching, and continuing that day’s focus by working on a more detailed project via drawing, water color, acrylics, charcoal & pastels, paper and collage, or 3-D construction in various materials.
