Bead Day


On Saturday, November 3, the Art Junction held its first bead workshop.

Participants explored creating clay beads from Sculpey polymer clay.

Exploring was the name of the day as everyone discovered colors and mixing techniques as well as different types of beads to create.

For most of the participants this was a first experience with creating clay beads; everyone learned new techniques and everyone was surprised by how quickly two hours passed for the workshop.

Here are some examples of the beads created on Bead Day.

Steak and Art this weekend in New Haven

I hope you can add the Art Junction to your weekend plans!

This is the last full weekend for the 4th grade art show, Friday & Saturday, 4:30 -7 pm.

Come view the monochromatic paintings of the Willard City Schools 4th grade visual art students under the direction of artist/teacher Kevin Casto. Support the emerging art talents of these young artists by attending their exhibition this spring as they visually express themselves and the greater community around them. Students will also have their Underground Railroad quilt on display.

The 4th grade students’ 16” x 20” monochromatic paintings will be on sale during the exhibit.  All proceeds from the sale of their artwork will be placed in the Outdoor Education fund for their 6th grade experience at Mohican Outdoor School. We hope you will participate!  Their artwork would be a great addition to your home, business or organization!

If you know of any businesses that need some great art for their offices stop by the Art Junction and support the 4th grade as they raise funds for their Outdoors Education Trip to Mohican by selling their monochromatic paintings.  Saturday night next door to the Art Junction the world famous Swiss Steak Dinner will be held at the New Haven United Methodist Church from 5 – 6:30 p.m.
