Recycled fish art at Children’s Museum
Rockland — Local artist and former teacher Marianne Swittlinger will show children how to make art with recycled products in a two-part workshop Wednesdays, Aug. 15 and 22 from 11 a.m. to noon at the Coastal Children's Museum at Sharp's Point South, 75 Mechanic St.
Children will make fabulous fish using bottle caps, cardboard, shells and more. One fish the children will take home and another will hang and decorate the Gulf of Maine Touch Tank exhibit. Children will add more to their fish the second week after a bit of drying.
Swittlinger’s artwork incorporates acrylics and mixed media. Her work is currently being shown at the Port Clyde Art Gallery and also may be seen in the museum’s Under the Sea room mural.
This workshop is free for members, included in the price of admission for non-members. For more information and to sign up, call 596-0300 or visit coastalchildrensmuseum.org.
