Waterville area families, be sure to pick up this month’s FREE art kit at the Alfond Youth and Community Center. This month’s kit is inspired by spring and Mental Health Awareness month. How are you caring for your mental and emotional health in these very tough times? Why not try this art kit for you and your kids? Celebrate spring with materials to make a colorful felted banner to hang in your home or outside! One hundred of the kits will include a book for kids on emotional health and wellness.
Developed 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. Art kits are distributed for free at partner sites throughout the city. 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 this community partnership program, generously providing volunteers and supplies to keep this popular relief program accessible to all.
