Looking for locally-based arts activities to do with the kids while sheltering in place? The Greater Augusta Arts Council has created a virtual Art the Box tour using their new Art Box map. The Art the Box tour map can be accessed at .

Take either a virtual Art the Box tour using our new Art Box map or you get some family exercise with a walking tour of many of the downtown boxes, as long as you practice all the recommended safety precautions and self-distancing rules. Save the jpeg map to your phone for use or print the pdf map if you have a printer. (Be sure to scale it down to letter size or print in sections.) Link to MAP jpeg

You will see the various designs that local artists have created on traffic boxes throughout the Augusta area. Maybe there is one located close to where you live?

Another activity is the Art the Box coloring page! Color your own Art Box using our special coloring page! The Art Box coloring page is a fun and safe self-distancing activity that is appropriate for all ages, including adults. Print off your free copy of the coloring page, grab your crayons or colored pencils, and create your masterpiece!

When you’re finished, post your coloring page to the Greater Augusta Arts Council’s Facebook page  and see what others have posted as well. Stay safe and continue to enjoy the Arts while sheltering at home!
