These watercolor paintings are part of Trumansburg Girl Scout Troop 40151’s experimentation with trying different kinds of drawing. The 3rd and 4th grade troop has been working with accomplished local artist Jim Kozlowski to learn drawing techniques. This project, titled “Spring Bird Songs,” combines realistic and abstracted drawings of birds with non-objective expressions of their songs. If we could see the songs that birds sing, what would they look like? The air would be filled with layers of patterns of overlapping color and shapes, like these paintings. The troop learned that combining more than one creative technique in a single painting allows a new exploration of subject matter and materials.
Please note that on Monday, May 25th, the library will be closed for Memorial Day.
The 5th grade Science classes at Trumansburg Middle School researched the human body digestive system in mid-April. Their task was to create a poster that teaches the 6th, 7th, and 8th graders about the finer points of our GI track. They collaborated to make a poster that does more than instruct; it celebrates the wonders of the digestive system in colorful and anatomical perfection!
Local author Elaine Mansfield will give a talk at the library on Thursday, May 28th at 7pm. Mansfield’s work and writing have focused on end-of-life and bereavement issues. She wrote the book Leaning into Love and was a nutritionist, exercise trainer, and women’s health counselor for 25 years. We hope you can join us outdoors or inside by the fireplace (depending on the weather).
