About the Event
Westbury Arts is offering a free zoom art adventure for children on May 8 from 3 to 4 PM when artist/author Meagan Meehan will read from her children’s book “Abela’s Adventure”. After the reading, participants will then work on an art project based on the story.
“Abela’s Adventure” is about a homesick parrot who moves to New York from her native Brazil, ultimately finding adventure in her new home and deeper appreciation of her family. After reading the story, Ms. Meehan will lead participants in creating their own parrot.
It is recommended that participants have clay, googly eyes, and feathers to work on the art project.
The link for the ZOOM will be sent out the day of the event.
