Where: CCA High School Art Room
CCAHS Art Club hosting their annual Elementary Art Nights for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Activities as follows:
Tuesday, March 6th: Lotus Floats Origami blossoms made with waterproof paper. Loy Krathong, the Festival of the Floating Lotus, is an annual event that is celebrated throughout Thailand, Laos, and Burma in mid-November. The Krathong is a bouyant lotus-shaped basket bearing flowers, candles, incense, and other decoration. Thousands are placed on the water and in larger cites there are parades, fireworks, and paper sky lanterns. In many cultures, the lotus flower represents new beginnings. Similar festivals in Japan and Hawaii are focused on remembering loved ones and honoring the deceased. Origami flowers that are created with a waterproof sheet of paper can be set on the water with candles and messages in a Western version of Loy Krathong. Mineral paper is created from calcium carbonate and a small amount of plastic — not trees. The paper folds and floats beautifully.
Tuesday, March 20th: Fabric Bookcovers for your favorite book
