On April 21, participants in Kelberman Create, our Monday evening art studio, showcased a project that they have been working on all month. As part of the One World Flower Fest, Create students saw their artwork displayed in and around Oneida Square in downtown Utica.
According to the event website, the purpose of One World Flower Festival is to, “foster appreciation for all the neighborhood has to offer, strengthen ties between community members, and beautify Oneida Square.” Richelle Maki, Recreation Coordinator for the Kelberman Center, invited Create students to participate in the festival because it gives children an opportunity to be a part of an event that benefits the entire community.
Create students panted 8 globes for the Flower Fest and also decorated a 15-foot banner. Kelberman Center Recreation plans to participate in One World Flower Fest again next year.
