Children will create an Animal Habitat of their choice (i.e. ocean, desert, arctic, rainforest) using a wide variety of non-traditional materials such as zippers and bottle tops, along with pictures of animals. The idea of recycling and repurposing materials in their artwork will also connect as a way we can do our part to be good citizens of the planet, helping to preserve the Earth and its habitats. Presented by Beth Bernett for children ages 4 and older.
