Arts For All

Monthly Activities

Arts for All welcomes everyone to take a journey through the world of art. Visit our literary arts room for free art activities every Saturday! These easy projects will take a deeper look at the exhibition on display in the Main Gallery. All ages. January and February projects will be available as take-home kits only.

 

Kits are FREE, but require registration online for pickup. Once you have registered, you can pick up your kit up to a week following enrollment. Please note that kits are in limited supply. If you have not picked up your kit after one week, your name will be removed from registration to allow other participants a chance to register for a kit. You will not be contacted after registration, so please plan ahead and pick up your kits in a timely manner.

Send us pictures of your completed project for a chance to be featured in our newsletter! Send your photos and name to GPAC@indy.gov.
