■ Art Center East’s take-home kit program brings art-making to all ages
LA GRANDE — Art Center East, La Grande, launched the fi rst round
of its newest offering: Take & Make Art Kits. More than 20 artist-created
kits for a variety of ages are live at
take-make-art-kits. Purchase them online, then enjoy a screen-free art
experience with written instructions and all the supplies needed to busy
your hands and stir up your creativity.
According to the art center’s announcement of the art kits, ACE staff
discussed many goals while creating the new program. Here are a few
they listed:
Bring art-making to the community in a newly accessible way.
Provide quality instruction that allows for more schedule fl exibility
during the busy summer months.
Support local artists and national artists alike.
Decrease screentime fatigue by including written instructions
rather than online, making them perfect when you need a screen-
time break or a project to take camping or on a trip.
The announcement of the new kits put it this way: “During these
ever-changing times, access to the arts is more important than ever. ACE
strives to continue creating offerings that ensure our community can eas-
ily and affordably bring new knowledge and joy into everyday life.”
Go to and select
a kit. There are a variety of kits, with more to come, for a range of ages and
bank accounts. (For the Youth Kits, donate the suggested amount or select
the kit for free.)
At checkout, choose pickup, local delivery (within La Grande City limits)
or domestic shipping.
