Art Kits for All- Distribution at Alfond Youth Center!

Under the guidance of art teacher Jessica Hamilton-Jones, students at Waterville Alternative High School are creating this week’s art kit! Make your own cornhusk doll. A corn husk doll is a Native American doll made out of the dried leaves or “husk” of a corn cob. The kits will be distributed at the Alfond Youth & Community Center from 3:00 p.m. or until supplies last. A number of kits will be available for the Alfond Weekend Backpack 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 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.
