The Lookout: Clown around with The Piccolini Trio


Tomorrow, children will create art inspired by “Pablo Picasso’s Blue and Rose Period.” They will learn about Picasso’s life and how the colors in his work reflected his feelings.

On Dec. 2, “Louise Nevelson’s Monochromatic Sculptures” is the subject, with participants gluing items inside a small box and then painting it all one color. Sculptures will once again be on the menu on Dec. 12, with kids creating and painting free-form pieces.

Bright Horizons is located at 2 Graf Road. To RSVP or for more information, call 978-465-0256 or visit

Artist exhibits work at Anna Jaques

Paintings by artist Averill Haines are on display starting today at Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport.

Haines is primarily a self-taught artist who started oil painting in 2004 after retiring from Boston University as the assistant athletics director and compliance coordinator. The Newburyport resident’s early childhood experiences in Keuka Lake, N.Y., and Wells, Maine, fostered a deep appreciation of the natural world and its beauty.

Selected original paintings and high-density giclee prints will be available for sale. Proceeds will benefit the Anna Jaques Hospital Aid Association.
