On May 22,Westchester Children’s Museum welcomed ‘happy art’ artist Marla Beth Enowitz, founder of Marla Beth Designs, for a special rainbow drip art workshop. Sponsored by ArtsWestchester, children as young as three years old learned the dazzling art of drip painting as they created their own rainbow canvas masterpiece.
“Westchester Children’s Museum is such a colorful, vibrant learning space – it was a real treat to be able to work with children in this atmosphere,” said Enowitz. “We had a marvelous time exploring our creative sides and learning about the rainbow through hands-on drip art. Even our littlest artists did a phenomenal job embracing the concepts and trying something new!”
Designed for children pre-k through middle school and located in the historic landmark Bathhouses on the Boardwalk at Rye Playland, Westchester Children’s Museum is filled with interactive exhibits not found anywhere else in this region. Kids have the opportunity to create and build while experiencing physics, science, art, technology and design.
“This workshop was part of a series called ‘Exploring Art through the Artist’ supported in part by ArtsWestchester and the New York State Council on the Arts,” said Tracy Kay, Executive Director of Westchester Children’s Museum. “We enjoy featuring the talents of local artists in our interactive workshop settings. Marla’s work was a perfect fit for the program and the museum as well.”
A Rye Brook momprenuer, Enowitz turned her love of painting from hobby to business once the pandemic hit. Her designs, described as equal parts whimsical and sophisticated, are often inspired by the imaginative minds of children. Enowitz’s custom pieces are featured in some of the most beautiful private homes and businesses in the tri-state including The First Bank of Greenwich and The Spa at The J House as well as in large-scale public art displays at The Westchester, the Jefferson Valley Mall and The Palace Theatre.
