Love collage? The Arts Council of New Westminster has art kits up for grabs on social media. Other kits are dedicated to kids' arts and crafts, watercolour and drawing.

The Arts Council of New Westminster wants to help local residents get in touch with their creativity during COVID-19.

The arts council has 10 free art kits up for grabs, and residents can enter to win one on social media between Thursday, Feb. 11 and Thursday, Feb. 18.

Program manager Laura Grady noted the arts council came up with the idea after cleaning out its storage shelves and sifting through all its art supplies – and finding enough supplies to create the art kits.

“During this time of staying at home, we want to encourage the community to find comfort and enjoyment in creating art,” Grady wrote in an email. “Whether you are interested in learning to draw, experimenting with watercolour painting or gluing your way through the therapeutic process of collaging, we have a kit for you.”

The 10 kits include:

  • Kids’ arts and crafts kits (5)
  • Watercolour kit (1)
  • Drawing kits (3)
  • Collage kits (2)

You can head over to the Arts Council of New Westminster Facebook page between Feb. 11 and Feb. 18 for a chance to win.

Winners can pick up their kits at the Gallery at Queen’s Park, in Centennial Lodge.
