The Bradford County Regional Arts Council (BCRAC) is excited to announce their fifth set of 100 sponsored Art Again Art Kits, Water Bottle Weaving. With this kit, children will have the opportunity to learn about the history of weaving and practice the craft by creating their very own pencil cup out of a recycled water bottle and donated yarn.
On Friday, Sept. 25, both the Sayre and Keystone Theatres had the kits available during their Curbside Popcorn hours. Child Hunger Outreach Partners (CHOP) will also have kits available for pick up at the 7th Day Adventist Church in Sayre on Monday, Sept. 28, during their pop up pantry.
BCRAC wanted to thank the program’s sponsors; because of them, 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, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and the B/S/S/T Area Agency on Aging, Inc. Foster Grandparent Program for providing volunteers to help prepare kit materials.
Sponsors of materials include BCRAC staff, Turnip Green Creative Reuse, and local community members that contributed to the Arts Materials Drive. Other community volunteers include Daneal Martin and Kara Bird.
