Art Lives Here: Creativity Kits

Art Lives Here Creativity Kits were developed to continue to provide access to creativity and art objects during the COVID-19 pandemic. Creativity Kits are free and are distributed to schools and community centers serving elementary and middle school children and families in and around Denver. While we are currently unable to install Art Lives Here exhibitions in our community, we remain committed to providing opportunities for artmaking, intercultural and intergenerational dialogue, and community-building.

Assembled With Your Health and Safety in Mind

Denver Art Museum’s top priority right now is ensuring the health and safety of our staff and communities. Staff wore protective masks and gloves while handling the materials and conducted symptom and temperature checks before beginning work. The work surfaces have been continuously disinfected. All supplies were purchased new or quarantined for at least 8 weeks and then completely ionized before we assembled your Art Lives Here Creativity Kit.

The assembled kits were quarantined for an additional time period before distribution to further reduce any chance of contamination. Once you bring your kit home, it is recommended to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds after handling the packaging and its contents. Feel free to dispose of the packaging right away and wash your hands again. Anytime you use art supplies, it is important to read the labels and understand the risks. If you are sharing supplies or materials with young children, supervision is always recommended.
