Creative Arts Play
Come visit folks from ArtReach and participate in two hands-on activities. You can choose to do monoprinting- using pre-carved shapes you will dip them in paint and transfer to paper to create your own masterpiece and Frottage - Frottage is the act of rubbing to create a texture. So, if you rub your pencil over paper when you have an object beneath the paper, you end up with some fairly interesting shapes and textures. We will be using fish – frozen fish!
Join the Girl Scouts of Central and Western Massachusetts to make your own windsock!
Are you a princess, construction worker, astronaut, rock star? Come to the dramatic play area where you can dress up and then “perform” on our stage.
Have you had your picture taken for the No Evil Project? This is a community photo project where people like you (and not like you) pick three labels that describe themselves, take photos posing as the three wise monkeys, "see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil," and write a good thing they've done to show they're not evil. (Simple, right?) The goal? To show the world that anyone can do good, no matter who they are. This traveling photo exhibition is shown all over and you can take part!
What can you do with crinkled paper, shells, feathers, colored sand, and recycled items? Anything is possible as you use sticky paper and recycled materials to create an art piece. Design your own floppy hat with stickers, markers, and duct tape. Wear it to keep out the sun!
