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.

Happy Holidays at the House of Art
Holiday Craft Day for Kids sponsored by the Monson Arts Council was a big hit held on December 11, 2016. Teachers and 18 students had a fun time getting pictures taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus, crafting winter wonderland sculptures, "ugly holiday sweaters," candy encrusted gram cracker houses, jewelry and decoupage projects. Photos with Santa were mailed home in cards decorated by the kids.

Halloween Craft Day III Haunts House of Art
The Monson House of Art was brimming over with tricks and treats as 20 kids attended the third annual Halloween Craft Day for Kids. Held on October 23, this 4 hour workshop brought together local artists to teach spooky crafts and fun activities to returning and new students alike. Projects included essential oils sugar face scrub, witches clothesline, spider web nightmare catcher, decoupage serving trays, mini haunted houses, felt finger puppets, yoga and a snack. Wyatt Aloisio of the Palmer Journal stopped by to photograph and interview the young artists for the paper. The kids had a blast and look forward to future events.
