Head of Falls, Downtown Waterville


To finish our Summer Art Journals and our Art in the Park programs, we will create plein air watercolor paintings of the sunflowers in bloom and the Two Cent Bridge. Learn simple ways to add watercolor to a sketchbook and how to create art outdoors with ease.

The Colby College Museum of Art is joining forces with Waterville Creates and the Waterville Public Library for the 2021 season of Art in the Park. Designed to foster creativity and community among residents and visitors to Waterville, Art in the Park is a free program that takes place at Head of Falls each Thursday during the Farmers’ Market. Program guests will include artists, musicians, live cats, teachers, and scientists.

This summer, we’re inviting attendees to create their own one-of-a-kind summer art journals. Each week, we’ll share new pages to add to the summer art journals, resulting in a fun and distinctive journal that documents the entire summer. As part of the Waterville Library’s free summer reading series, a pre-selected book will be read aloud to participants each week as they construct and design their art journals. Bring a blanket or chair to get comfortable while listening to stories and creating content for your journal.

This program is free and open to all ages and levels of experience. This event will be rescheduled or canceled in the event of rain.
