Where: CCA High School Art Room
CCAHS Art Club hosting their annual Elementary Art Nights for 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. Activities as follows:
Tuesday, March 6th: Lotus Floats Origami blossoms made with waterproof paper. Loy Krathong, the Festival of the Floating Lotus, is an annual event that is celebrated throughout Thailand, Laos, and Burma in mid-November. The Krathong is a bouyant lotus-shaped basket bearing flowers, candles, incense, and other decoration. Thousands are placed on the water and in larger cites there are parades, fireworks, and paper sky lanterns. In many cultures, the lotus flower represents new beginnings. Similar festivals in Japan and Hawaii are focused on remembering loved ones and honoring the deceased. Origami flowers that are created with a waterproof sheet of paper can be set on the water with candles and messages in a Western version of Loy Krathong. Mineral paper is created from calcium carbonate and a small amount of plastic — not trees. The paper folds and floats beautifully.
Tuesday, March 20th: Fabric Bookcovers for your favorite book
Who doesn’t have that favorite book that they want to keep forever. In this session we will make fabric book covers and decorate them with block printing and paint - designing a cover that will go with the book. Students are asked to bring their favorite book but it MUST BE A HARDCOVER BOOK and no bigger than 9”X7”

All children K-12, in the Clear Creek Amana district are welcome to participate in the Children's Maipole Dancing Group for the 2018 year. Due to complexity of some dances, younger children may help holding the pole or have other roles. There will be some dances that everyone can participate in. There is no cost, other than costume and commitment to weekly practices. We will practice on Sunday afternoons, in Homestead, for a couple hours each week. Last spring the dancers performed at the Iowa City Arts Fest, and in Amana. They have been invited to perform at Houby Days, in May, in Cedar Rapids, and possibly the Czech Fest in the fall. Please email or call for more information, 319-491-7876. maipolechildrendancers@gmail.
