May 2020 Week 8
Staying Connected and Creative 
Each Wednesday during the stay-at-home advisory period,
we'll be sending out a variety of art-related links to help keep you connected

It's finally feeling like spring here in Hudson, and the beautiful weather has us looking for ways to put our creativity to work outside. Check out these nature-inspired projects for all ages that you can try in your own backyard!
Three ideas for weaving with found objects from nature

Inspiration and a wide variety of techniques for rock painting

Beautiful mandalas made from natural materials

Leaf dishes made with air dry clay - easy and useful!

We need your help to keep going!

It takes a village of staff and artists to adapt and s ustain programming in  this  challenging environment we find ourselves in. 
For a limited time, we're offering socially distanced portraits from local photographer Peter Worrest to thank you for donations of $15 or more. Claim your photo session for your own family or pay it forward with #TheFrontStepsProject. More info is available on our website!
Tell us...

How are you staying connected with your community right now? We'd love to feature some of the ways our community is continuing to connect, even as we're staying apart. Do you have a Zoom happy hour with friends? Have you found a pen pal? Started a group craft project? Taking socially distant walks? We want to hear about it! E-mail us at and tell us what you're up to!
