Clary Gardens is expanding their annual Scarecrow Trail and adding a fall festival this year. We’re thinking we should be making scarecrows with children and families. Here’s what we’ll be doing

STEP 1. How to be a bird scarer – this is a body language/facial expression activity and photo shoot

Clausen, George; Bird Scaring – March; Harris Museum & Art Gallery;

STEP 2. Draw that scary face from step 1.  This is an exploration of drawing,  learning about dark/ medium/light values and negative space.

STEP 3. Print your cloth.  This is a lesson in pattern and design (think of these rag dolls and their colorful arms and legs)

STEP 4. Noisemakers and whirligigs – because a little movement and noise help with the scariness factor

STEP 5.  Assembly – Back to our original bird scaring poses, we’ll put our bird scarers all together ready for installation in the artPARK where they will remain as part of the community trail through the end of October.
