Art Kits for All: “Kusama” Pumpkin Decorating Kit

Thursday, October 29, 2020,

Downtown Waterville Farmers’ Market

The newest art kit features a mini pumpkin to decorate for Halloween. This kit is inspired by the artist Yayoi Kusama of Japan, who creates playful dot painted pumpkins that have become a very recognizable icon of modern art. Kusama has said she is enchanted by the charming and winsome form of the pumpkin and we hope that you will be too! This kit will be distributed from 3:00-5:00 p.m, or until supplies last. 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.
