ArtMaking @ Home

Create in the Comfort of Your Own Space!

It’s fun for the whole family!

We’ve selected activities that are great fun for both kids and adults and use materials we hope you have around the house.

The Arts Center provides weekly ArtMaking @ Home kits for youth and families receiving food and hygiene supplies through the Corvallis Public Schools Foundation.
