ART JAM 2021
May 8, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pmFREE
KID smART’s family-friendly block party is coming to YOUR neighborhood! Create works of art that blend drama, music, creative writing, and visual art with math, science, social studies, and English language arts.
If you will be in New Orleans on May 8th and want to pick up a ready-to-go ART JAM Kit with all of the supplies needed for your family’s ART JAM, you’ve come to the right place! ART JAM Kits are limited – be sure to register before they run out. One Kit per family, please!
(If you are celebrating ART JAM anywhere else in the world or don’t need a kit, the activities and needed materials will be listed on this page on April 28th! You are also invited to donate to KID smART – HERE –.
ART JAM Kit Drive-Through Details:
When > Saturday, May 8th, 10am-1pm
DRIVE-THROUGH >> The event kicks off with the ART JAM Kit Drive-Through where families will receive their ready-to-go bag of art supplies and other goodies. The Drive-Through will be open from 10am until 1pm CT on Saturday, May 8th, at 2541 Bayou Road. Supplies are limited, so families are encouraged to pre-register for an ART JAM Kit at artjam21.eventbrite.com. ART JAM Kit registration is pay-what-you-can and all donations go toward KID smART arts education programs in New Orleans public schools.
ART JAM can happen anywhere, so participants outside of New Orleans can skip the Drive-Through and access the activities online.
ACTIVITIES >> The included arts-integrated activities are easy enough for children to do on their own, but fun enough for the whole family to enjoy together. The activity lineup includes sidewalk chalk poetry, rubber band bands, love drops, family recipes, community-inspired monologues, and more. The full activity lineup will be announced at kidsmart.org/artjam on April 28th!
RAFFLE >> Your activities can last the day, the month, or until the next ART JAM, but there is a reward for immediate imagination: families that complete at least one activity and submit a photo of their work of art on May 8th will be entered into a raffle to win several prizes!
