GreenPeabody has collaborated with the Peabody School District and the Peabody Institute Library to plan a Nov. 3 event at Brooksby Farm known as the Harvest Art Festival. For its first year at Brooksby Farm, the Harvest Art Festival will be called “Drawn to Brooksby,” and will give all Peabody school children (grades k-12) the chance to display artwork they have prepared.
The purpose of this event is to feature and celebrate the talents and creative expressions of our young students/artists. The 2012 Harvest Art Festival will endeavor to highlight the creative artwork of the students of Peabody, respect their collective accomplishments and increase their self-esteem. Collections will include paintings, drawings, photography and 3-D projects.
The Harvest Art Festival is a free event and is open to the public. “Drawn to Brooksby” will give all participating students the great opportunity to view the artwork they have prepared, along with the artwork of their peers. Join your community to view student artwork that will be displayed in the farm’s greenhouses and inside the farm store.
Brooksby Farm will offer their famous apple cider donuts, along with hot and cold apple cider, to all event attendees. Visitors can view student artwork while enjoying musical entertainment provided by the Colin Rosso Trio and spend a great fall Saturday at one of Peabody’s most beautiful outdoor settings, Brooksby Farm. In addition, families shouldn’t miss the kids art activity area.
The entire Peabody community is encouraged to attend this event at Brooksby Farm this Saturday, Nov. 3, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Brooksby Farm is located at 54 Felton St. in Peabody.
