Crossing Arts Alliance offers free creativity kits
The Crossing Arts Alliance in downtown Brainerd will offer free creativity kits to engage young artists in the community.
BRAINERD — The Crossing Arts Alliance will distribute creativity kits 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 10, on tables inside the Crossing Arts building, 711 Laurel St., downtown Brainerd.
This month's projects teach pointillism and provide materials to make a customized travel tic-tac-toe board. Creativity kits are free to the public. The 300 kits are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
“I come from a family of artists and supporting this program is a wonderful way to honor their memory through giving the gift of art to budding young artists,” stated September sponsor Dawn Cacioppo in a news release.
The kits are partially funded by the voters of Minnesota through grants from Five Wings Arts Council and the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
