Our May activity at the Old Town Newhall Library is our last venture until September. Melissa Lackman planned a wonderful project in which each child made two bird sculptures, one to be displayed at the library and the second to be taken home. The kids loved the project that used foil and plaster infused gauze to create the birds. The sculptures were formed the first week and allowed to dry. Then during the second week students painted their birds before they were placed on unique wire “spring like” stands. Not one child missed week two. They could hardly wait to come back for the painting of the birds. If you want to see all of the birds, visit the library and look for them on the shelves near the reserved books. The ARTree will return to the library for twice a month activities in September.
The ARTree had hundreds of families join in the fun of making and decorating their own pots that they used to plant into. At the end of the activity they all had something special to take home.
