Mara Vinton and Stephanie Manuele teach art to all the PCSD#6 5th Graders. Inspired by Andy Warhol’s Fruit in Space series and color schemes, students created their own Fruit in Space with a color scheme in some classes. Other students observed the work of a pop artist named Lobo. They created self portraits, stylized them using sharpie, drew geometric patterns over the top, and painted the patterns using various color schemes and water colors.

It is the 225th anniversary of the Bill of Rights!
The Bill of Rights, added to the Constitution in 1791 as the first ten amendments, protects rights such as freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and the freedom to freely practice religion. The Constitution gives the government power; the Bill of Rights protects individual liberties. These two ideas have helped to make our Constitution the longest lasting of any nation in the world.
Pam Smith, our adult circulation manager, added a few books from the collection, so you can learn more about the Bill of Rights.
Visit Park County Library Foundation’s Winter Gathering for more details.
