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. The kits will be distributed at the Alfond Youth & Community Center from 3:00 -5:00 p.m. or until supplies last. A number of kits will be available for the Alfond Weekend Backpack Program too. Art Kits for All is an effort designed to help keep 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. Art Kits for All is a collaborative project, with many local nonprofits providing manpower and supplies including Waterville Creates!, the Colby College Museum of Art, the Kennebec Montessori School, Waterville Public Schools, and the Family Violence Project. The Art Kits are assembled while wearing masks, art materials are sanitized, and the kits are prepared a week prior to the distribution date to further minimize any transmission risk.
