Zoo Town Craft Activity Preview for Upcoming Event: Party for the Planet 2010 at Naples Zoo Caribbean Gardens

I will be at the Naples Zoo Caribbean Gardens on Saturday April 24, 2010 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm promoting ARTScool at the Party for the Planet 2010.
Sample Zoo Town building block. We are going to have a selection of salvaged cardboard boxes along with several art supplies (paints, brushes, markers, construction paper, and glue), so that the kids can use their creativity to draw, color, paint, cut and paste according to their skill levels and build their own corner of Zoo Town. We'll also have a selection of coloring outlines of a few zoo animals on hand to help populate our cardboard Zoo Town.

Examples of animal cut outs colored with Prismacolor Double Ended markers.

Demo video of quick cartoon sketch. While the kids are working on their individual Zoo Town boxes, I will attempt to complete as many souvenir cartoon portrait sketches as possible depending on the flow of participants in the art activities. Best plan to arrive early to improve the chances of getting your drawing requests done ;).
