Today Lorraine Brown and I presented our children’s art program, “Make Art Out of Recyclables” at the Secaucus Library, Secaucus, New Jersey (http://secaucuslibrary.org/).

Using recycled paper and various materials, children made cards; some for Mother’s Day and some just used free expression.

We had a fabulous time and look forward to going back! Thanks so much to librarian, Cecilia Mucciolo for having us!

If you’d like to have us present “Make Art Out of Recyclables” at your library (or children’s birthday party), please email me at: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

I’d also like to give a shout out to Richard Moglia, whose extraordinary art is currently featured at the Secaucus Library. Lorraine and I have a soft spot for animals, and we think it’s super duper cool that Richard Moglia donates work to help animal conservation!

I tried to find a website for Richard, but came up empty handed. But here’s a cool article I found on him: http://www.hudsonreporter.com/view/full_story/26377981/article-Portrait-of-the-apes-Local-artist-is-an-advocate-for-vanishing-primates-?

Enjoy some of the photos I took of his work:

      • Reading this was very moving. The Secaucus Library has hosted a number of my photography exhibitions in the past. They were also kind enough to host the results of a photography essay I did with the 5th/6th grade audio/visual class I worked with a The huber School. This must have been incredibly rewarding for you. JD
