Sandy Lowder, certified art teacher with over 16 years teaching experience, was invited to organize the event and teach art classes to the children over the three days.
The children, divided into Red, Green and Blue "Villages," created "Bugs, Birds and Bees" using construction paper, pipe cleaners, feathers, colored markers, paper plates and glue sticks.....and their imaginations!
Each day, a different bug, bird or bee came alive as each child created their individual version. The young artists learned different methods to add color, tear shapes with their "pincher fingers" and how to "rub, rub, rub" using their markers and glue sticks. They also learned how to listen and follow directions, while their parents learned what their children "could do."
Brokaw Principal, Andrew J. McCree, thanked Mrs. Lowder for "creating this experience for our students and families and for allowing all of them to be successful."
Sandy Lowder teaches art classes for Fox River Academy of Music and Art in Oswego and is developing and offering classes for children with special needs. She has extensive experience working with all "ability" levels.
Fox River Academy has encouraged appreciation of the arts through education since 2003 and is newly located at 26 W. Van Buren St., Oswego. Students from Preschool through Seniors are welcome.
Please call 630-551-4321 for information.
