Backpack Design Project July 19 Afternoon Session
Time & Location
About the event
Giving children the opportunity to design and bring their own ideas to life is empowering! Creating with peers builds valuable skills, confidence and friendships. An art experience at our beautiful and serene Treehouse among the pines on Number Nine Road provides peace and relaxation to participants, which is much needed nowadays.
Kids will learn about design through a unique experience – they’ll get to take apart a backpack to see how it’s made! They’ll learn how to use new tools and apply art processes to create a new backpack from the old and new parts. This exciting art experience sparks creativity in young artists, allowing them to shine. Small Town Hope will even feature the participants’ artworks on our website so the community can celebrate their success. Children will bring their backpack home filled with school supplies, too!
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought circumstances that have made events for children difficult. But things are looking up! The Treehouse is a spacious environment equipped with everything we need to provide a safe experience for your child. Class sizes are limited to 5 participants. Each child will have their own work table and their own tools to minimize germ spreading. Two sinks are readily available for frequent handwashing and hand sanitizer is available.
Thanks to the incredible and generous folks at the Pennsylvania Rural Arts Alliance and 1889 Foundation, there is no charge for this event. Funding is provided by Pennsylvania Rural Arts Alliance from the 1889 Foundation Creative Health Impact Grant.
