On Sunday, May 7th, Harsimus Cove is hosting their first neighborhood-wide stoop sale. And it will be big – over 30 households are participating.
Even better, a portion of earnings are being donated to theChurch World Serviceto help refugee families in Jersey City. So you can get a little something while giving a little something back to the community.
This Sunday marks the opening of the 6th Borough Market, an outdoor family-friendly market located at 1 McWilliams Place (Hamilton Park) featuring quality homemade and vintage goods, gift items, jewelry, stuff for kids, beauty and bath treats, and then of course kids’ activities and food. Event is from 11am-4pm.
There’s still time to enroll in 4-8 week courses at Jersey City Arts School (326 Fifth St.). Learn portrait drawing, ceramics, or beginner or intermediate drawing and painting. While these courses are for adults, there is an age 12+ course titled “Comics,” which the school describes as “understanding the skills, processes and techniques involved in the time-honored tradition of juxtaposing words and images in a sequential format, otherwise known as cartooning.”
Jersey City Art School (326 Fifth St.) is offering a two-day workshop in ceramics at a discounted rate. If you missed figure-drawing last night with other local artists, you should definitely scoop this deal up. You’ll learn how to make, glaze, and fire your own unique piece.
