Art in the Park: Common Threads

Thursday, July 7, 2022,

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, create hand-printed flags, posters, and story totems through stamping, relief printing, and collage with artists Elizabeth Jabar and Colleen Kinsella from Future Mothers artist collective, as a part of the Waterville Creates Common Threads project.

This week’s book is Maybe Something Beautiful: How Art Transformed a Neighborhood, by Isabel Campoy and Theresa Howell.

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.
