Artwork in the Public Library
When you are in the children’s section of the Paul Sawyier Public Library, take time to look closely at the artwork. The more you look, the more you will see! Take an imaginary field trip through the stained glass window. Do you recognize the leaves of our state tree (the tulip poplar)? How many birds, butterflies, and bugs can you find? How many can you match to the names around the border of the window? How do you think this window was created? Can you find books about birds, butterflies, and bugs?
If you were to make a stained glass window, what would you include? Make a drawing of your own!
Now take some time looking at the colorful batik wall hangings. What do you see? You can play a matching game with the Literary Arts panel (LINK). How many stories could you find? Can you find these stories in the catalogue?
If you were going to draw a picture of a favorite story, what would it be? Make a drawing of your own!
