Art in the Park, Art Kits for All, and Earth Jams Concert

July 15, 3:00 PM5:00 PM

Free

Have you ever seen a stack of stones on a trail or in a field and wondered who put them there? These lovely stone piles, called cairns, are wayfinding signals that originated in Scotland. The cairn is a signal of safety and guides travelers towards food, shelter, or further trails. This year, the art from the Maine International Film Festival features a brightly colored cairn, and to help celebrate, we will make some of our own using pastels, black paper, and clear glue.

Also, This month’s kit, Art for Social Change, is inspired by the short film Natasha Mayers: An Un-Still Life, showing this week at the Maine International Film Festival. Mayers is an activist who creates art for social change, often using humor and wit to communicate her message. What are you passionate about? Do you hate seeing litter in your neighborhood? Or do you love to help social causes? This kit contains materials to create your own unique lawn sign. One of our favorite collaborators, The Family Violence Project, provided inspiration for our sample lawn sign that proclaims every home should a safe home.

Finally, Matt Loosigian will play music for kids from 3:00 – 3:45 p.m., and the Waterville Public Library will provide a reading of The SheepOver by Jennifer and John Churchman.
