Week of Festivities

Week of Festivities

We can’t think of summer in Marblehead without thinking about the Festival of Arts. For over 50 years, the festival has been a celebration of all things art related, attracting incredible artists from near and far. Whether you enjoy film, music, writing, painting, photography, there is something for everyone to enjoy!

Marblehead is a community bursting with arts and culture and it’s wonderful to be able to celebrate that on such a grand scale every year. We appreciate all the hard work the volunteers and board members do to create such an amazing event. A lot of time and dedication, all year round, goes into making the Festival of Arts the great success it is! 

The 2019 festival runs from July 4th – July 7th. To learn more about all of the events happening around town during the week of the festival, go  to our culture page – https://discovermhd.com/culture/

Meet the Owner of Out of the Box Studio, Stephanie Krauss Verdun

What is your business? Out of the Box Studio is both my personal studio as an artist, as well as a space where children and adults can come explore and create with a variety of art materials and techniques. It’s a space to “let go of the rules” during a class or workshop and to have fun making art your way. 

What made you decide to start your business? Creating art is something I’ve always enjoyed doing. I was looking for a flexible schedule where I could teach, have time for making my own works, and something that would allow me to stay home with my children, especially when they were younger. I love working with kids. I learn the most about what it means to be creative from them. They are naturals, especially when it comes to imagination and creativity. 

What do you love most about Marblehead? I love Marblehead for its charm, “quaint” appeal, and of course, being by the ocean. I’m intrigued by its history and feel the most relaxed by the water. Every time I take a walk or a drive, I see something new (or old!) that I’ve haven’t seen before. I love the artist community and the support from the town. I have made some wonderful friends here who feel like family. There are lovely local shops and delicious restaurants. The list goes on….

What hobbies/interests do you have? I enjoy going for walks, practicing yoga, photography, knitting, painting, ceramics, sewing, animals, music and graphic design.
