Youth Art Month: Explore with Yarn and Craft Sticks @Central

Explore the possibilities of art with yarn, craft sticks and other materials. Limited instruction will be given on making God's Eyes (Ojo de Dios) - a traditional yarn craft from the Huichol Indians of the Sierra Madre mountains of Mexico, and the Aymara Indians of Bolivia. Of course you can use the yarn to make your own creation! It's your thing, do what you want to do! Ages 5 and up.
