Has your child had the opportunity to enjoy getting creative with one of the Bradford County Regional Arts Council’s (BCRAC’s) Art Again Art Kits? If so, you will be thrilled to hear that BCRAC has just completed their third set of 100 sponsored Art Again Art Kits, a DIY Florentine Relief Panel.
With this kit, children will be able to create their very own Florentine Relief Panel out of recycled and donated crafting materials. While crafting with cardboard, yarn, glue, aluminum foil and paint, children will have the opportunity to practice and learn about the technique and style of Italian sculptor, Lorenzo Ghiberti.
The Rialto Theatre in Canton will have kits available during their Curbside Popcorn hours on Friday, Aug. 7. Child Hunger Outreach Partners (CHOP) will also have kits available for pick up at the Gillett Fire Hall on Monday, Aug. 3 during their pop up pantry.
Thanks to the program’s sponsors, Art Again Art Kits are available to the public at no cost. Kits are available while supplies last.
Art Again Art Kits are created and distributed by the Bradford County Regional Arts Council with distribution assistance by Child Hunger Outreach Partners (CHOP). Further support includes Tioga Downs, United Way of Bradford County, and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. Sponsors of materials include BCRAC staff and local community members that contributed to our Arts Materials Drive.
