Through 2020 to early 2023, The North Dakota Museum of Art, ArtWise, the Grand Forks Public Library, and St. Joseph’s Social Care and Thrift Store teamed up to offer our community an exciting new arts program. Conceived during the early months of the pandemic, these art kits were designed to follow Covid safety guidelines while offering families access to creative visual expression and art-making. Each month’s project featured a different theme.

Due to the popularity of the Take&Make collaboration, we continued to offer these kits throughout 2022. We appreciate your support and extend our gratitude to our sponsors! Art played a vital role in ensuring a healthy community. The Take&Make art pack included all the materials and information about the project. These projects were FREE to you because of the tremendous support from our sponsors!
