In art classes at Northern Liberties Recreation Center, students learned their Chinese Calendar animal using their birth year. They made layered crayon rubbings of all the different textures they could find in the classroom to decorate the bodies of their snakes with scales and patterns. Using tape, they made the heads of their snakes 3-dimensional.
Youth at Cohox Rec also participated in 3-D crayon rubbing snakes!
The New Year begins on February 10th in 2013. It is the Year of the Water Snake. Find your animal sign using your birth year: http://www.chinesenewyears.info/chinese-new-year-calendar.php
