First Night Monterey - Celebrating Art for 30 Years!
SUMMER ART CAMP IS A WRAP!
Children of all ages love the chance to be creative, and First Night Monterey's Summer Art Camps use arts as a catalyst to nurture creativity and enhance skills in a non-competitive, safe, fun environment. We are already missing our young artists and makers! There was a lot of fun and learning with age-appropriate mentoring as children created in a real studio environment and had the opportunity to paint, draw and make with a variety of materials. Each Friday featured a gallery exhibit of their work completed during the camp week.
POSTER/BUTTON DESIGNS REVEALED FOR FNM 2024!
Since 2003, First Night Monterey staff has collaborated with CSUMB and the Service Learning class for Publication Design students, engaging the students into a creative competition to design the annual First Night Monterey Poster and Buttons. FNM artists work with the design students from theme concept to design for five weeks in class until selection of the final design. The winner will have the opportunity to produce the graphics for print and web.
CALL FOR ARTISTS FNM 2024 OPEN!
First Night Monterey, Monterey County's premier New Year's Eve celebration of the arts is in its 31st year, and the event on New Year's Eve 2023 promises to be the best one yet! This year's theme is "Together in Monterey!", and First Night is inviting visual and performing artists to submit their applications to be part of a family friendly, alcohol-free celebration ringing in 2024!
FIRST NIGHT'S BIG IDEA - ART FOR ALL!
THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED through MC GIVES. Over time, First Night has expanded its passion for families and the arts to be a year-round experience, with workshops, festivals and kids’ programming. Our outreach project, "Artworks!", brings together young people to take part in performing and visual arts at community sites in Monterey and Greenfield. Through the year-round Artworks! program – culminating in the New Year’s celebration of visual and performing arts – First Night hopes to encourage involvement and love for the arts. Help us keep the Arts in childrens' lives!
