Art Kits for All- Distribution at Waterville Farmers’ Market

Thu. Jul 9 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Our newest kits are Collage art kits! We will be at the market from 3pm-4pm giving away these fun packages of art. #artkitsforall

Waterville Creates! has launched a new collaborative program, Art Kits for All. This effort is designed to help keep our communities’ families engaged and entertained during this public health crisis by providing free art supplies and instructions for art projects that can be created at home. The kits will be distributed at the George J Mitchell School and the Downtown Waterville Farmers’ Market.

While Waterville Creates! developed the Art Kits for All concept, many local nonprofits are collaborating in this effort to provide manpower and supplies including the Colby Museum of Art, the Kennebec Montessori School, Waterville Public Schools, and the Family Violence Project. The GJM School and Downtown Waterville Farmers’ Market are also lending a hand by providing a distribution network for the kits. Community donations for this philanthropic effort are also being requested. 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

The Art Kits for All are assembled at the Colby Museum of Art; masks and gloves are worn during kit assembly and all art materials are disinfected to remove any risk of contamination. The kits are prepared and sealed a week prior to the distribution date to further minimize any transmission risk.
