Second Sundays

Second Sunday of every month, 2-4pm | Free | All ages

The Harlow Gallery’s Education Committee organizes and hosts SECOND SUNDAYS, their monthly series of free community art-making events which is lead by volunteer presenters and is sponsored by, Camden National Bank. Mark your calendars and look forward to a variety of activities on the second Sunday of every month from 2-4PM at the Harlow Gallery. These events are FREE and open to the public. Some materials are provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own as well.

These events are opportunities to both try something new and sharpen old skills. They are open to everyone; from beginners to professional artists and everyone in between. SECOND SUNDAYS brings artists and art lovers together to enjoy the process of making art as well as looking at and discussing it. Most events are family-oriented, and all ages are welcome. Children under 10 MUST be accompanied by an adult.
