Celebrating present and past of farms and farmers
in and around West Concord

If you are an artist or even a smidge artistic, you can do one or more of the 299 squares that will make up this large mural to be installed in May in West Concord.

easy, smeezy

Flowers, beetles and fish. Instructions and supplies for making artwork that can become part of a real life Art for All Art Show when we emerge from our homes! And a virtual show while we are sequestered.

What precautions are we taking?

When you come to pick up at 21 Winthrop Street, you can choose the image you want to paint without touching anything but the bag. Paper Towels are available if you want to prevent touching the bag. The date that the bag was filled is shown. You could choose to not open the bag for 3 days from that date, thereby ensuring that the items inside are not contagious. Same with the tray of paint

This mural is partially funded by The West Concord Cultural Committee and the Mass Cultural Council. To bring this project to completion by the Art for All program, a $5 to $15 contribution per kit, or a donation to our program is appreciated.

We especially need plastic egg cartons for the paint for the mural.

Drop off anytime at the front porch of 21 Winthrop Street in West Concord

We use donated materials, art supplies and equipment as much as possible.

Especially helpful would be the following:

  • paints of all kinds, particularly acrylic and water colors 
  • colored pencils and markers 
  • brushes 
  • papers 
  • tapes and glues
