Chapin, SC (Paul Kirby) - The talent of members of the Crooked Creek Art League came together again recently as members of the league painted a mural in one of the Crooked Creek park’s buildings. The beautiful piece of artwork features one of the league's favorite subjects, children enjoying nearby Lake Murray.
What a wonderful subject for the Crooked Creek Art League to draw its inspiration from. This is the same group of talented artists who were responsible for the Sailboat Project that was so popular around Labor Day last year. It not only was a fun scavenger hunt; it was also a wonderful way to beautify the area and raise money for a great cause.
According to the League, inspiration for the components that make up this mural comes from the children involved in the Afterschool Safari program. According to their website at https://www.icrc.net/parks/crooked-creek-park/programs-activities/after-school, the Afternoon Safari provides a safe and nurturing environment and offers a variety of opportunities for children to grow physically, socially and academically. The daily schedule includes an afternoon snack, supervised homework time, activity time and social recreation. Children are grouped by grades. Activities include arts & crafts, reading, character building exercises, guest speakers and organized games. This was no small undertaking and we appreciate all the effort that goes into making our community so beautiful.
