Art in the Park: Create Your Own Mini Painting

Create Your Own Mini Painting

August 4, 2022

3:00 - 5:00 pm

NEW LOCATION DUE TO HEAT: Greene Block + Studios, 18 Main st, Waterville

Due to our predicted extreme temperatures, join us at 18 Main St for this event.

Art for small hands, art for all hands! Gather with us to paint your own mini painting! Based on the illustrations in Sophie Blackall’s book, “Hello, Lighthouse”, we will explore her gorgeous coastal color palette of sea-greens, ocean-blues, whites, and reds. All painting styles and abilities are welcome at this family-friendly paint-party.

Book: “Hello, Lighthouse” by Sophie Blackall

Art in the Park is back! Once again, Waterville Creates has joined forces with the Waterville Public Library and the Colby College Museum of Art to offer dynamic, creative summer programming to provide arts experiences for all. This season will kick off with a new summer reading series and will have lots of engaging arts activities each week. Special guests will include practicing artists, Kennebec Valley Community Action Program, Children’s Discovery Museum, local musicians, and area teachers!

Each Thursday participants at Art in the Park will create works based on a book or community theme. Watch a “how to” project demonstration, then make your own creation at Head of Falls, the large, open, green space located in downtown Waterville adjacent to the historic Kennebec River.

Each week, a book will be read aloud to participants as they build and create. Bring a blanket or chair to get comfortable while listening and creating. This program is free and open to all ages and levels of experience.

Thank you to our Art in the Park sponsors, Colby Arts & Humanities, Kennebec Savings Bank, and Pro Moving Service.

Due to high temperatures Art in the Park will be held at Green Block + Studios on Main St.
