Art in the Garden: Papermaking

Miss Julie and Miss Jennie combined efforts to assist the
children in making paper from recycled scraps.
The artists were able to help blend the saturated paper with
our blender. They saw the pulp floating in the water and learned
how to dip their screened framed into water and pull up a piece of paper.
After watching it be pressed off of the frame, they added flower petals,
leaves and spots of colored paper. We endured 54 degree weather while doing it!
