Event Date: Friday, August 2nd, 2013
10:00AM – 12PM
1:00PM – 3PM
Students from the Low-Residency MFA Studio Art Program at the University of the Arts will be working with children from the New Hope Temple Baptist Church to assist them in transforming their playground area through artistic means.
The children will engage in a workshop where they will be making plastic flowers and planters using recyclable materials to exhibit on their playground fence. Some materials have been donated by local stores and some have been collected from the environment by individuals in the community.
The purpose of this project is not only intended to expose children to the arts but to help form a space designed for them. The use of recyclable materials exposes them to the idea of taking something old and creating something new. The bright colors they will be using for the flowers will liven up the environment.
