Starting in July Pocosin Arts will introduce a new community program funded by the National Endowment for the Arts. The program has an exciting schedule that will take place on Saturdays, offering family friendly, hands-on arts and craft based activities that are free of charge. Pocosin Arts’ three resident artists in clay, metals and digital fabrication will lead these projects. Seven projects will be held at the Edenton Farmers Market and ten additional projects will take place at Pocosin Arts’ studios in downtown Columbia. Pocosin is looking forward to meeting families from Tyrrell, Chowan, Perquimans, Washington, Dare and Hyde counties.
