Artists from SPACE - South Pasadena Arts Center, a community arts organization, helped children make their own creations this week during the second of the "Wonderful Wednesday" series at the South Pasadena Public Library.
Artists from the South Pasadena Arts Center (SPACE), a community arts organization worked with children who made a variety of creations during the second “Wonderful Wednesday” event of the summer in the South Pasadena Public Library Community Room.
Christine Chin, a SPACE teacher, presented “The Bird Show: Colorful Birds and their Nests,” a session of creating art inspired by the natural world.
With assistance from John James Audubon and Charley Harper, the SPACE instructors useda variety of art and natural materials in helping the kids sculpture colorful birds before creating their nests.
SPACE no longer operates a storefront studio on Mission Street in South Pasadena, but continues its non-profit mission to produce arts events and advocates for arts education.
