One of the most popular and fun projects completed at Art After School in April was making stuffed animals. Using a felt base, the children cut, sewed, and glued fabric scraps to create beautiful little creatures. Some of the children had previous experience sewing by hand, but others learned a new skill. Threading the needle was especially challenging, but also rewarding upon success! It was a lot of fun watching the animals come to life.

March was a busy month at Art After School. One of our favorite projects was making “Box Monsters.” As you can see, the children and our adult volunteers had a great time creating these little creatures using tissue boxes and colored paper. We love how each monster is different!
