Youth Arts and Pacific American Heritage Come Together
On exhibit at the Westover Branch Library, March – May 2014
Origami for the Whole Family: Wednesday, May 7, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. If you can’t attend the program, drop by our Origami station throughout the month of May where you’ll find materials and instructions for making a crane to donate to Westover’s chain.
In celebration of Youth Arts Month in March, students at McKinley Elementary School created artwork with art teachers, Jillian Bonahoom and Michele Mautawalli to be displayed at Westover.
The 1,000 Cranes Project is a school wide project that connected McKinley students across grade levels. Many families and parents helped by folding, stringing, and collecting the cranes, which will be sent to The Children Peace Monument at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park in Japan.
You can contribute by joining us for Origami for the Whole Family on May 7, or drop by our Origami station throughout the month of May where you’ll find materials and instructions for making a crane to donate to Westover’s chain.
Please join us Wednesday, March 19, from 4-5 p.m., for a reception to meet the students, teachers and parents, and to learn more about their 1,000 Cranes Project.
