We invite families and children to join Orange County Arts Council at the Newburgh Free Library with Agrisculpture Amy as we design and create “Summer Insects”.

Materials are provided. Registration in required. Please see additional guidelines and policies on our website.

Did you know that certain insects will only be visible in our beautiful Hudson Valley during the Summer? Join AGRISCULPTURE Amy at Newburgh’s Free Library to learn about a dozen NY Summer insect friends – then create your very own insect sculpture from natural, recycled and craft materials to bring home! From Butterflies to Lightning Bugs to Praying Mantises – meet the locals who flutter around the woods, fields and mountains of our gorgeous backyard!

Meet the art teacher: Amy Lewis Sweetman

AGRISCULPTURE Amy loves to create metal sculpture informed by nature and farm equipment, to restore the Earth by foraging abandoned agricultural machinery as media and to teach environmental awareness – giving youth / public workshops involving recycled materials and the creative process of adaptive reuse. Born and raised in Orange County, NY – Amy studied Architecture at Cornell University, worked as an Architect in Dubai, UAE as well as a Film Production Designer in Los Angeles, CA before moving back to Orange County, NY to launch her own design practice. AGRISCULPTURE Amy is celebrating 10 years of AGRISCULPTURE this year, and can’t wait to meet you all at her 4 brand new Summer Workshops held through Orange County Arts Council and the Jarrett Markel Creativity Bootcamp. See you there!
