I picked up a copy of the Sept. Providence Monthly and in addition to the fashion events in my below posts, I found some really fun looking art events. Here they are:
Open Studios Pawtucket - 9/24 & 25 - There will be six mills around town with studios open to the public! That's a lot of mills and a lot of studios!
12th Annual Providence Rotary Street Painting Festival - 10/2 - Unfortunately I can't make it to this because I'll be in Boston for the Brew at the Franklin park Zoo. But this sounds really fun. Hundreds of street painters will be competing in the contest. There will also be food samples from local restaurants and live music featuring World Premiere.
Classes at AS220 - all year long - AS220 has a new facility, new equipment, and some fabulous new class offerings. Classes include letterpress, screen printing, laser cutting, and much, much more!!
Cake Decorating Contest at the Big E - 9/20 9:30 am to 8 pm - If you are going to the Big E, the best day to go is the day they are having the Cake Decorating contest. It is really fun to check out all the entries. FYI I won Best in Show at the first ever Big E Cake Decorating Contest. I unfortunately will not be competing this year because I'm too busy with illustration work.
Connecticut Children's Book Fair - 11/12 & 13 - This is one of the best children's book fairs around. They have fantastic speakers. And there is always time to have a conversation with your favorite.
