Art Kits for All- Distribution at Waterville Farmers’ Market

Thu. Oct 1 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

What kind of art can you make out from materials meant for the landfill or recycling center? Find out with this week’s kit! Based on the installation now on view at Common Street Arts, UnEarth by artist Ian Task, the kit will contain materials for a mobile and recycled materials to use. Makers are encouraged to recyclable materials from your home as well.  The kit will be distributed at the Waterville Farmers’ Market from 3:00-5:00 p.m, or until supplies last.

Waterville Creates! in collaboration with community partners, including the Colby College Museum of Art, the Kennebec Montessori School, Waterville Public Schools, and the Family Violence Project has launched the very successful Art Kits for All program. This network of local non-profits powers the Art Kits for All program, generously providing volunteers and supplies to keep this popular relief program accessible to all.

In direct response to the COVID-19 public health crisis, Art Kits for All is an innovative, collaborative program designed to keep our community’s families engaged and connected to the arts.  By providing free art supplies and instructions, this program offers high-quality, accessible art experiences in a completely reimagined way.

Art Kits for All can be sponsored for as little as $10, to donate visit: https://secure.givelively.org/donate/waterville-creates/art-kits-for-all

Generous support is provided by our Ambassador Sponsors: Colby Center for the Arts and Humanities, Kennebec Savings Bank, and MaineGeneral Health and Advocate Sponsor: Bangor Savings Bank. Additional support has been provided by United Way of Mid Maine.
