The Breckenridge Fine Arts Center is continuing to be creative during this current time of coronavirus-driven social distancing that we all must practice right now.

The local art center is offering a do-it-yourself art project for Breckenridge’s children to complete at home. The BFAC is currently closed due to the county- and state-wide restrictions to limit the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

The first 75 children who are registered via email will receive a small kit of supplies for free. Each registered child will get a mini canvas and easel, a set of paints, and two paintbrushes.

“We want to see how much you all love Breckenridge, so be creative,” BFAC Director Shalon Wilson posted on the center’s Facebook page. She also included an example of some “Love Breckenridge” artwork, pictured above.

The supplies will be available for pickup on Wednesday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The BFAC will stagger the pick-up times so that there is no risk of physical interaction. The supplies will be placed on the BFAC’s front porch for each child at a specific, assigned time.

To register, send an email to  info@Breckenridgefineart.org with the child’s name and the desired supply pick-up time.

The BFAC hosted a similar project in March.
