Part of New Canaan Library Making and crafting series
All ages are welcome! We will have 3 different art stations where you can explore your creativity.
Barbara Rucci returns to the New Canaan Library on October 1 from 12:00 – 2:00pm in collaboration with The Glass House and New Canaan Museum’s October4Design! We will construct dwellings from recycled materials, create wooden structures, and investigate famous sculptures through paint and collage. All ages are welcome! We will have 3 different art stations where you can explore your creativity. No registration needed, this is a drop-in program.
This program is designed for children to explore materials and ideas on their own. Parents are free to engage with other parents, or their child, as long as they are not impeding their child’s creative process. Drop-offs will not be permitted.
