Students in grades K-12 are invited to the Portage Lake District Library to collaborate with Clay Artist Elaine Eikenberry on Saturday, January 27, from 1:30 – 2:30 p.m.
Students will create clay art pieces that reflect the theme of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The clay art process includes using underglazes and carving in clay to create images of children. Participants may get a little messy working with clay, so they are encouraged to dress accordingly.
The completed projects will be sent to The Swords into Plowshares Peace Center and Gallery in Detroit to be shown during their Visions of Peace Exhibition February 24 – April 1, 2018. The exhibition’s mission is to transform the world by encouraging peace and human rights through education. It strives to raise awareness of the United Nations Rights of the Child and support the national campaign to ratify a new vision of peace and justice.
Students who participate in the January 27 clay art project will meet at the library to complete their projects on Tuesday, February 6, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Library programs and events are free and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570.
