Winter ‘Art to Go’ kits still available

“Art to Go” kits are available at the Newport Visual Arts Center. One of the kits shows how to create a canvas journal cover like the one pictured here.

The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts is offering winter “Art to Go” kits for distance learning by youth, families and adults throughout Lincoln County. 

The Art to Go kits, designed for children 6-18 as well as adults, promote creative, project-based learning opportunities and include written instructions, photographs and all required materials. A series of four kits will be made available, covering projects such as paper bowl making, weaving, collage and canvas journal cover making. 

Participants will enjoy a weekly Google Classroom/Zoom check in for support with each project. Families and adults can reserve one to four kits by emailing Sara Siggelkow, arts learning coordinator, at [email protected] or by visiting coastarts.org/events/winter-art-to-go-kits.

Art to Go kits can be picked up at the Newport Visual Arts Center (777 NW Beach Dr.) through March 4, on Thursdays from 3 to 4:30 p.m., and Saturdays, from 10 to 11:30 a.m., at the VAC’s main entrance off the Nye Beach turnaround. Reservations are recommended, as kits are limited to 40 per project. A suggested donation of $15 per kit is requested for youth and $25 per kit for adult. Project add-ons are available for $5 per kit.

To sign up for event notifications, community members should join the Friends of the VAC e-newsletter by visiting coastarts.org/visual-arts-center/newsletter.
