Saturday's Salisbury Art Stroll provide fun for all

SALISBURY — Those looking for a great day out should make sure not to miss the upcoming Salisbury Art Stroll, taking place this Saturday, when art, music, food and fun take over the Old Eastern Marsh Rail Trail.

Running from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine, the Art Stroll has just as much to offer this year as last, maybe more. There will be over 20 artists and fine crafters set up along the Old Eastern Marsh Rail Trail, displaying and selling their work. But that’s only the beginning, for activities are planned for everyone to enjoy, according to Salisbury Assistant Town Planner Leah Hill, one of the day’s organizers.

Silhouette and caricature artists will be on hand to memorialize children, pets or families in very special portraits. And for those who prefer to be painted upon, face painters will be present.

Free art classes for children ages six and older are on the agenda, provided by Renee Schneider of “Colorful Kids. “ Although walk-ups will be allowed, if space is available, class size is limited to eight young students per class. Hill encourages parents to sign children up ahead of time to ensure they have a reserved spot. Signing up can be done by contacting Hill at lhill@salisburyma.gov or 978-463-2266.

The schedule for the free children’s art classes begins at 10 a.m. with birch tree painting, and follows with stained glass paper window making at 11 a.m., scrape away painting at noon, watercolor marker prints at 1 p.m., birch tree painting and stained glass paper windows repeating at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. respectively.

Activities take place at the rail head parking lot of the Old Eastern Marsh Rail Trail, Hill said, located at Friedenfels Road, which is off Route 1 (Lafayette Road), across from Striper’s Restaurant.
