DAP completes outdoor art-science series

HURLEY - The Downtown Art Place completed its outdoor art and science classes for children on Thursday with a study of trees at Riccelli Park in Hurley.

The series of classes was coordinated by Sue Spaete, a retired Wakefield kindergarten teacher. She said she wanted to do a series of outdoor classes which integrated both art and science for children. Each class in the series had a different theme - insects, birds, shoreline and trees - and the classes - taught by local artists and naturalists - took place in local parks on Tuesdays and Thursdays in early August.
