Shelburne Falls Sister Village Art Exchange info

On Monday June 4th at 2pm the delegation from our sister village in China will be visiting the Children’s Art Museum and the Trolley Museum. They will be presenting us with art work from the children who attend school in Bohai as Mutianyu no longer has its own elementary school…similar to our regional school idea.

Be a part of this historic exchange. Meet the delegation from our sister village in China.

At 1:30 our art supplies will be out, come and make art that will be displayed in China………….We will also learn some about China and our sister village.
Come make art or bring art to present. There is no “fee” for this event but a donation to CAM would be appreciated. Suggested $3 per child.
