BRIGHT HILL LITERARY CENTER ANNOUNCES 18TH ANNUAL WINTER WORKSHOPS FOR KIDS BEGINS FEB. 4


01/27/2012 - On Saturday, Feb. 4, Bright Hill will begin its 18th annual Winter Literary Workshops for Kids Program. The program, themed "Legends & Folktales: The Northern World," begins with a trip to the Corning Museum of Glass, followed by four sessions on Feb. 11, 18, 25, and March 10, taking place in Bright Hill's Education Wing; the last session includes a mini-exhibit and a program for parents and guardians.

The participants, aged 5-13, will have the opportunity to see the Hot Glass Show, Flameworking Demo, Glassbreaking Demo, and Optical Fiber Demo at the Corning Museum. While at the museum, the children (who will be given packets with pencils and paper) will take notes and sketch objects and exhibits of interest. Later, during the workshop sessions, they will write their own legends and poems as well as creating artworks, using their notes and sketches as resources.

The workshops are led by Bertha Rogers with the assistance of interns. Due to the continuing fiscal crisis in New York, Bright Hill is making the program available to all at no charge, although there is a materials and travel fee of $45. There is some full and partial funding to help pay materials and travel fees; those interested should call Bright Hill at 607-829-5055. The scholarships are made available, in part, by the Delaware Youth Bureau, the New York State Council on the Arts, the Tianaderrah Foundation, the A. Lindsay and Olive B. O'Connor Foundation, the A. C. Molinari Foundation, Otis A. Thompson Foundation, and Stewart's Shops. In addition, some paints and other materials are provided by Golden Artists Colors, Inc; and other area businesses, including Delhi Paint and paper.

Students will bring their own bag lunches and snacks for the museum trip, which leaves Bright Hill at 8:15 a.m. on the 4th and will return by 4:30 p.m.; on other workshop days (which take place from 9 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.), students will bring their bag lunches but Bright Hill will provide morning and afternoon snacks.

Bright Hill is located at 94 Church Street in Treadwell, one block north of Barlow's General Store on Route 14. For more information and to register call 607-829-5055 or email wordthur@stny.rr.com.
