Pinwheels for Peace

August 14, 2020, 10:30 - 11:30 am

Join Allison Maurais for this fun August art class to make a "Pinwheel for Peace." Pinwheels for Peace is an art installation project started in 2005 by teachers Ann Ayers and Ellen McMillan of Coconut Creek, Florida, as a way for students to express their feelings about what’s going on in the world and in their lives. Make a pinwheel with your own unique design and help us cover the Gilley lawn in pinwheels for International Peace Day in solidarity with other organizations – including Conners-Emerson School in Bar Harbor – on Sept. 21. Suitable for kids in middle school and up. Find out more about Pinwheels for Peace at www.pinwheelsforpeace.com
