In addition, The Aldrich is launching a new way for families to easily bring the Museum and art-making into their homes with Aldrich at Home: Creative Kits.
These kits include a wide range of traditional and surprising art-making materials and prompts and will be available for curbside pick-up at the Museum starting July 6.
Each kit is $40 (or $36 for Aldrich members). Creative Kits can be purchased online here.
Each family who purchases a Creative Kit will be invited to a virtual meet up where participants can show off their work and make new friends on Wednesday, August 5 at 2 pm.
