Art in the Park – Saturday 24th March 2007
With the help of FoSJP volunteers, over 130 people enjoyed the creative activities at Art in the Park to celebrate the coming of Spring.
The weather was crisp and sunny, which created a great backdrop for the outdoor still life paintings, the natural collage work, and the chalk drawings of things associated with the park. Several children had their face painted with delicate flowers and native trees found in the Park.
Inside, paper sculptures and minibeasts bookmarks were busily being made, along with paper collages of plants and flowers.
The FoSJP Kiosk was also very busy; we had to make two extra batches of soup, and we sold many cookies and ice pops.
Thanks go to all the Friends who helped to make Art in the Park so much fun: helpers and participants alike. It was great to see adults and children getting stuck in. Many people made the comment that this event was a really good idea which helped to create a Park community, which is what FoSJP is all about.
