For the Birds

Tamarack Wildlife Refuge provide raptor education to Neighborhood Art House children.

Did you ever hear the hoot of an owl or watch a swooping raptor in search of prey? The children could tell you about these majestic birds after educators from Tamarack Wildlife Refuge brought their “ambassadors” to visit the Art House. These birds are not able to be released due to their severe injuries. After a demonstration of how the rodent population would expand exponentially without predators, the students met Sophia, a barred owl; Lady, a peregrine falcon; and Jasper and Willow, screech owls with different colorations.

2017 Closes with a Flourish

Neighborhood Art House Open House

A lively and well-attended Open House closed out the Fall 2017 session with a flourish. Parents and siblings enjoyed the displays of student art work as they moved about the walls and tables holding paintings, prints, mosaics, and clay creations. It is always enjoyable to observe the children proudly showing off their work and explaining how it was done.

Performances by student dancers and musicians were warmly received by a very attentive audience. Do take a moment to view clips of these Open House performances by scrolling down to the Open House video below.
