On August 4, we held our 3rd annual Art at the Market, at the Belmont Farmers’ Market. It’s become a popular activity that kids and parents alike look forward to. Jeanne Mooney and her daughter, Frances, found last year’s supplies in their basement (thank goodness!) and, once again, set up everything. The 3 of us are like a well-oiled machine, working together smoothly and enthusiastically.
There was a steady stream of children and adults creating artwork for 2 solid hours. It seemed like more adults participated this year, which is fantastic! There’s no real structure to the activity. We just provide the space, supplies, and fun atmosphere for folks to find their creative side while at the farmers’ market. You can draw anything you like, but generally we draw inspiration from the vendors’ delicious veggies, fruits, and breads.
Enjoy these pictures of that day, taken by Jeanne.
