Last week Friendspired had the opportunity to grab a sneak peek of the amazing new Milly’s Which Craft Art Studio at Garden State Discovery Museum.  This exhibit is so exciting and is sponsored by A.C. Moore.

We love that there will be various sessions for visitors to create art in very unique mediums such as mosaics and papier mache. We love the fact that the artists themselves may even be making appearances thanks to the Discovery Theater artists. We cannot wait to learn how to paint like Vincent Van Gogh with Vincent Van Gogh.

See below for their most current press release.

A.C. Moore Inspires “Milly’s Which Craft Art Studio” At Garden State Discovery Museum

South Jersey based Craft Corporation Sponsors Local Art Experience for Kids

 

CHERRY HILL, N.J. MAR 24, 2016— The Garden State Discovery Museum is very excited to announce its newest exhibit, Milly’s Which Craft Art Studio crafted by local South Jersey based craft retailer, A.C. Moore. Unveiling on April 8, 2016 at 11:00 a.m., the exhibit will be a place for children of all ages to learn about and create art.  The art studio will hold sessions throughout the day for visitors to create their very own masterpieces, exploring all mediums from painting and screen printing to mosaics and papier mache.

“Milly’s Which Craft Art Studio Crafted By A.C. Moore celebrates Milly and Herb Iris and their artful life together. Their passion for the arts and belief in Art as a powerful force in transforming lives is reflected in every facet of this new, exciting hands-on exhibit.” Said Garden State Discovery Museum founder, Roree Iris-Williams, “An engaging creative venue for families, school groups, and communities to enjoy crafting and art-making together, the Art Studio is a fitting tribute to my Mom, Milly Iris, who will continue to inspire the next generation of young artists and Art-repreneurs!”

The exhibit will include daily special appearances from the Discovery Theatre sponsored by the Horizon Foundation for NJ players, as master artists teach various creative techniques, including self-portraits signature to the dynamic Frida Kahlo and the thick painting expertise of Vincent Van Gogh.

“It is so inspiring to see our staff pour their creative power into this very special exhibit. There are no boundaries to art and we are excited to give it real presence and space here at the Museum,” said Kelly Lyons, Museum Director, “We’ve been so lucky to first have Milly and Herb Iris inspire the idea and then A.C. Moore come in and give it great wings.  We can’t wait to see our tiny visitors and their parents get crafty.”

The Garden State Discovery Museum will offer a new pottery birthday party option, class field trips, and after hour rental space for painters of all ages.

A.C. Moore will also sponsor four free teacher workshops training teachers with specialized hands-on strategies developed with the Museum’s Education Department to use art across all curriculums.

“Giving back is at the core of everything we do at A.C. Moore and we are elated to partner with one of Cherry Hill’s most beloved neighborhood staples to inspire visitors from both near and far,” said A.C. Moore CEO, Pepe Piperno, “The hope is that this exhibit will bring yet another opportunity to create and share more creativity in our home community.”
In tandem with a creative lineup tailored for visitors, the art studio will house the museum internship program titled, Artist In Residence. The experience will allow students to witness the importance of partnership across all departments, from guest relations to programming and instruction.

“This is a tremendous opportunity for artists and education students alike.  I am especially excited for my [Rowan College At Burlington County] students to be involved in the hands on experience afforded with such an internship,” said Jessica Puma, “The Discovery Museum really builds from within and I am thrilled to present such a rich opportunity to area artists and art students.  Ideas and creativity will abound!”

The art studio will be open to the public during the Discovery Museum regular business hours and slated to host several scheduled classes per day. For more information, visit www.discoverymuseum.com.
