We’re teaming up!
FREE Take & Make Art Kits for Teens at Newport Library
Inspired by Velvet & Silk: the Palmer Family Quilts at the Newport Art Museum
CREATE! Together we’ve created quilting kits for teens inspired by artwork currently on view in the Velvet & Silk: the Palmer Family Quilts exhibition at the Museum. Each Take & Make Art Kit comes with all the materials needed to make 1 quilt square for themselves and 1 for Newport Art Museum, plus a FREE PASS to the Museum good for 2 adults (kids to age 17 are free) to see the exhibition in person!
Want to learn more? The Library has created a display of books related to quilting, so you can read up on topics touched on in the galleries.
As an Institutional Member of the Newport Art Museum, the Newport Public Library has 2 Membership cards to the Museum that can be taken out and used for free admission ANYTIME! Each card is good for 2 adults (kids to age 17 are free). They’re popular – reserve in advance by calling the Library.
Don’t forget to local quilting enthusiast to learn something or share your knowledge on June 4 from 12 – 4pm for Newport Art Museum’s Free Community Day: Quilting Generations Together!
Personal quilting kits will be available in the Young Adult Department at the Library beginning Tuesday, May 31.
