Get Crafty at Halloween - Autumn Art and Craft Session in Killaloe
On Friday November 4th, local artist Nathalie El-Baba ran a “Get Crafty at Halloween – Autumn Art and Craft Session” in Killaloe Public Library. The target audience was 4-7 year olds. On arrival the participants got busy colouring a variety of pictures, whilst Nathalie prepared the crafts. Then they all got stuck in (literally) to making a leaf shaped window mosaic on acetate using glue and lots and lots of coloured paper. The end products were very creative, colourful and impressive. The process of making this mosaic was quite simple and even the youngest child succeeded in making it all by themselves! They finished off the session creating pictures from soft chalk pastels which again they had great fun smudging and messing. All in all it was a most worthwhile, fun and creative session and the kids were all delighted going home with their creations.
