Nature-inspired art program at Pember

T here are a number of children’s art events coming up at the Pember Library and Museum.

The nature-inspired art program focuses on creating art with items found in nature and drawing nature-themed items. Children will be using their imagination while cutting, gluing, drawing, coloring and creating.

The program takes place every Wednesday from October through November.

On Oct. 2 there will be stencil art, where participants will be able to use paints or colored pencils to create their nature masterpiece using stencils.

Oct. 9 will be freehand art; participants will be using pastel chalk or colored pencils to create a nature-inspired drawing.

The following Wednesday, Oct. 16, will be stained glass art, which is a simple class of coloring an animal preprinted on special translucent paper. Markers will be used for this project.

On Oct. 23, there will be pinecone art, where participants will glue pinecone petals on cardstock to create an owl and create leaves and tree bark. Scissors and craft glue will be used.

Oct. 30 brings magic color scratch art, offering a chance for participants to “scratch off” a nature-related image on an 8-1/2 by 12-inch sheet to reveal a color hidden underneath. It comes just in time for Halloween where pumpkins, bats and cats could be a possible etched drawing.

Wednesday, Nov. 6 is seashells and gemstones art, where participants will take an unfinished wooden photo cube, paint it and add seashells and gemstones.

On Nov. 13, will be paper mosaic art; there’s plenty of scrap paper for participants to cut shapes to create a cool paper mosaic. Organizers have several simple outlines for use, or children can imagine one of their own.

The following week, on Nov. 20, will be bead art, where participants will add glass beads to a 6-inch form to create a sparkling snowflake. Some of the beads are glow-in-the-dark to give life to their flake.

Each class runs from 3:30 to 5 p.m. and is open to children ages six and older. There’s no deadline for registering children, but there are only 10 spaces for each class. Parents should contact Bernadette Hoffman at the museum or email pember_edu@roadrunner.com.

A free, nature-inspired art program for children will be offered every Wednesday in October and the first half of November at the Pember Library and Museum. Each class runs from 3:30 to 5 p.m. and is open to children ages six and older. There is no deadline to register. Activity details at pembermuseum.wordpress.com. Contact: pember­_edu@roadrunner.com or 642-1515.
