This month’s kit, Art for Social Change, is inspired by the short film “Natasha Mayers: An Un-Still Life”, showing this week at the Maine International Film Festival. Mayers is an activist who creates art for social change, often using humor and wit to communicate her message. What are you passionate about? Do you hate seeing litter in your neighborhood? Or do you love to help social causes? This kit contains materials to create your own unique lawn sign. One of our favorite collaborators, The Family Violence Project, provided inspiration for our sample lawn sign that proclaims every home should a safe home. See you at the market!
Please note that we will be at the Farmers’ Market and not at the Alfond Youth and Community Center this week!
Waterville Creates in collaboration with community partners, including the Colby College Museum of Art, the Kennebec Montessori School, Waterville Public Schools, Kennebec Valley Community Action Program, and the Family Violence Project powers the Art Kits for All program. 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 our Give Lively page.
