Pelham Art Center has just announced a community initiative to distribute free educational art materials while people remain in their homes in the coming weeks. In partnership with eleven local businesses offering their services in store, or with curbside delivery and takeout, the Art Center is providing an Art Education Kit to local customers.

Each art kit contains a 24-page book about the life and work of a world-renowned modern artist. The kit includes everything you need to make artwork using that artist’s creative approach: brushes, paints, paper and palette! The activity book provides step-by-step instructions to create your own masterpiece–it is suited for all ages, for individual use or for a fun group art activity!
