Multi-Media Watercolor Explorations I

What’s not to love about art that is accessible to all ages and ability levels and is perfect for group display! This free two-hour introductory level art event will introduce participants to several exciting watercolor techniques layered with marker, colored pencil, and pastel.  The final product, a three-dimensional pod, will be displayed in a public installation during Franklin’s ArtWeek.  Working with Carolann Tebbetts, visual arts director for FPS and high school art teacher, a range of techniques will be utilized to first create a 2D decorative surface.  That 2D paper will be transformed into a three-dimensional pod that twirls and moves when hung in a open area.  All pods will be installed in a public venue for the town to enjoy!  This workshop is open to all middle school aged children and students in the Best Buddies program (with a buddy)! This class has 20 only spots available.

BFCCPS Rocks

Students inspire through the arts with drawing, painting, and collage on rocks throughout the Franklin Common.  Messages of kindness, hope, and positivity serve to remind us that art can be a form of expression that evokes emotion in the viewer. Community members are welcome to design their own rock to contribute to the “BFCCPS Rocks Art Walk.” We will provide paint brushes and supplies!

About Franklin, MA
Franklin Massachusetts is a suburban industrial community nestled between the Charles and Blackstone Rivers and is 22 miles southwest of Boston. Settlement of Franklin came late in 1676 and its early years had settlers involved in small farming and grazing. The town's abundant water power made for early industrial development. Soon there were cotton mills and boot and shoe manufacturers established in Franklin but the dominant industry from 1799 on was straw bonnet manufacturing.

In 1778 Franklin renamed itself to honor Benjamin Franklin and although over 30 communities in the colonies did that, Franklin Massachusetts was the first to do so. In return Ambassador Franklin showed his appreciation by sending the town a library of 116 volumes thereby making Franklin the first town in history with a public library!

Franklin is a center of a wide spectrum of architectural styles that have been proudly preserved in the town. Visitors will have the pleasure of seeing Greek Revival and Italianate buildings as well as High Victorian Gothic and Second Empire and Queen Ann styles.
