Earth Day Endangered Animal Mural Painting
Saturday April 6 @ 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
Do you love animals? This year, the theme for Earth Day is “endangered animals.” Jo Plenger-Schulz will create a tree canopy mural, leaving spaces where animals can be added. Get an “endangered animal” circle from the children’s desk, then color the animal using colored pencils, markers, or crayons. When you have finished, give your animal to the librarian at the Youth Services Desk so it can be attached to the tree canopy mural. The finished mural will be approximately 6 feet long and 3 feet wide, and it will be displayed in the children’s department of the library!
This FREE program is open to children of all ages. There is no participant limit, but please register your child(ren) at the Youth Services Desk or via the registration form below so we can prepare enough materials.
Jo Plenger-Schulz has a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art and a Master’s in Art Therapy, both from NIU. You may know her as the artist who painted the library’s huskie, which is currently on display near the elevators on the lower level. Jo specializes in temporary murals and looks forward to creating them with interested young artists.
