It will take place at the House of Art from 7 -10, with a social hour at 6 pm. It is modeled on the children's craft days which have been a MAC feature the last three years, but it is limited do adults over 21. Why should kids have all the fun? The price is $30 online, $40 at the door. Participants will cycle through a series hands-on craft experiences, including Woodworking, Mixed - media, Jewelry, Photography, Paper Arts and Watercolor.
Kids Spring Forward With Craft Day
On March 13th the House of Art was buzzing with activity as 15 students ages 7-11 and 6 teachers gathered to usher in spring with the second annual Spring Fling Craft Day for Kids. Each room had a different activity including truffle-la trees, flower crowns, decorating cookies, T-shirt design, sewing a blue bird and designing a fairy house. The Monson Arts Council sponsors the event along with a Halloween Craft Day in October and a Holiday Craft Day in December. The kids love coming together to learn new skills and make cool stuff.

Talent Show Graced by Good Weather, Great Acts!
The eighth annual Monson Arts Council talent show, Western Mass Performs, danced around the snowflakes this past Saturday night. With cleanup from the last storm still not complete, and with Sunday's storm looming, the show went on splendidly in a blessed window of calm. An enthusiastic audience was regaled by 24 impressive acts, waiting patiently through some early sound difficulties, and thoroughly enjoying themselves. For a full story and pictures, visit the Talent Show page.
