Dear Friends of CAAC, 

We know you're staying home, and so are we, but we recommend taking an art break once in a while. Here are our Top 10 Things to Do to Stay Healthy–Stay Creative! 

#1 – Join our 2020 “Stay Healthy–Stay Creative” campaign 

To help inspire and uplift our community, we are starting a social movement! Spread the word to help us fill yards across Columbus with a message of positivity and hope. 

Donate a minimum of $20 to CAAC and receive a “Stay Healthy–Stay Creative” sign delivered by our team to your door: No face-to-face interaction required (although waves from the window are welcome). For those who don’t have gardens or green spaces, signs will fit nicely in your window. 

Visit to get yours today!

#2 – Check out our weekly Art Prompts on Social Media 

This week’s prompt is inspired by Maya Federle’s senior project, Humans of Columbus. Who’s your favorite Human of Columbus? Hear more from Maya in the video below:

#3 – Do something fun with the family 

Indiana artist Jamie Lynn Williams has created a Fiber and Textiles Coloring Book for Columbus: Download a FREE copy here.

#4 – Get some fresh air 

With a walk down Sixth Street view and experience (through the window) Notes From A Lookout Tower at 411 Gallery. An audio Tour by Jennifer Riley and Tony Ingrisano is coming soon!

#5 – Watch and learn 

In September 2019, we hosted an Artist Talk with historic preservationist Sarah Marsom. Listen to her presentation on architecture and craftivism below. 

Sarah will be back (online) to teach a workshop this spring: stay tuned for details!

#6 – Visit a park! 

Pack up a picnic for you and your loved ones, grab a blanket and sit under a tree in one of Columbus' parks. Be sure to keep your distance from other folks enjoying the spring blooms.

#7 – Quiz yourself 

Did you know Columbus is the home of seven National Historic Landmarks? Can you name all seven? Learn more about them at

#8 – Remember good design 

Although most of the 2019 Exhibit Columbus exhibition has been removed, you can still access and enjoy the Family Activity Guide: Download a FREE copy here

#9 – Read a book  

Though the Bartholomew County Public Library is physically closed, you can still access audiobooks, story times and more. Or if you prefer a book in your hand, Viewpoint Books is open for new orders and home delivery!

#10 – Go online  

We’re collecting a list of online programs, activities and arts resources on our website.  

Our latest watch is this Dance of Empowerment by Martha Graham, shared with us by Cindy Frey of the Columbus Area Chamber of Commerce.

Do you have a creative idea or resource that you would like to share with our team? Send us a note at

We are in this together!
