Art Kits for Kids! – January 2, 2021
monca and the Turner Print Museum are collaborating on an art project geared to ensuring fourth/fifth graders are engaging in art activities at home while we are in these interesting times. Knowing that art heals and realizing the constant need to build museum visitors and supporters of the future, these museums are teaming up together to educate from afar.
Based on two works of art, one from each museum’s permanent collection, the activity presented to the students in the art kit will allow them to not only push their creativity but will help them gain art skills and vocabulary.
Sixty art kits will be available for pick-up at monca, 900 Esplanade, November 5-8 and 12-15 during museum hours: Thursday-Sunday, 11-5pm. Students and parent/guardian can come into the museum and observe the actual art pieces that are referenced in the project plus pick up their kit. Included in the kit will be instructions, copies of the referenced artwork and the supplies to complete the project. These are being offered free through the generosity of CSU Chico, Turner Print Museum, monca and outside donations.
From December 3-6, students can drop-off completed artwork(s) at monca and pick up art kit 2. Students’ work will be on display along with the original two examples from the museums’ collections at date to be announced.
