Head of Falls, Downtown Waterville


Art in the Park is back! Once again, the Colby College Museum of Art joins forces with Waterville Creates and the Waterville Public Library to offer a summer of dynamic, creative programming featuring hands-on arts experiences for all.

Join us each Thursday at Head of Falls, downtown Waterville’s outdoor gathering space, adjacent to the historic Kennebec River, to enjoy a read-aloud picture book and create your own artwork based on the book or weekly theme. Bring a blanket or chair to get comfortable while listening and creating. Special guests will include practicing artists, local musicians, and area teachers!

This week, learn to make paper that blooms, inspired by Ticonic Gallery’s Exhibition, The Farm Tools Project. This eco-friendly paper is made with plants and wildflower seeds. Planting instructions will be included. Special thanks to Fedco Seeds of Clinton, Maine.

This week’s book is Sonya’s Chickens, by Phoebe Wahl.

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