The Phoenix Building’s Art Room has been buzzing with activity throughout the month of March. Led by veteran teacher and artist, Jenny Travers, kids from 8-12 created mobiles, masks, birdhouses, and cards to share with loved ones. Younger children, aged 5-7, met with Diana Pasquini and used a variety of media to create a colorful garden of daffodils and fruit trees that now adorn the walls of the historic Oak Tree Lodge. Jenny’s 3-D ART Class will take a hiatus, but may return later this spring. The FUN with COLOR Class will continue until mid-May. Our Family Resource Center is happy to be able to provide visual and performing arts classes to our community’s children and plans to continue to so. We are grateful to the teaching artists, young artists, and their families for making this program so successful!


I like weaving. My favorite color is turquoise. I don’t know if it’s hard or easy to do. I just like it.”

“I like drawing and painting a lot. I really liked hot gluing and wood burning the birdhouses, putting them together, then decorating them. I’m going to hang my birdhouse up inside to decorate my house.”

“3-D ART was really creative and we had a very nice teacher. We learned really cool things. Working together to make the masks, then painting them, was cool. It was really fun!"

“I LOVE ART! I like doing art with my friends; and I love making people happy with my art. I like building things a lot. I really liked building the birdhouses because I like challenging my brain. I like puzzles and putting the birdhouse together was like a puzzle that challenged my brain.”
