In honor of Black History Month, this month’s art kits are inspired by the award winning book by Ashley Bryan, Beautiful Blackbird. In addition to the art supplies in the kit, each kit will include a copy of Bryan’s book! The kits will be distributed at the Alfond Youth + Community Center from 4:00 p.m. until 5:30, or until supplies last. A number of kits will also be available for the Alfond Weekend Backpack Program and the Waterville Public Library’s “Library To Go” program.
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 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.
