The Sunshine Arts group in Upper Darby, PA is dedicated to promoting community and empowering children with creative outlets by teaching arts, music, dance, and nature skills. This year, in part with support from one of our mini-grants, Sunshine Arts has continued their tradition of outdoor appreciation by taking students birdwatching and teaching them how to paint using watercolors and other media, as well as emphasizing their role as stewards in maintaining the local environment by planting bird-friendly plants, clearing weeds, and creating better habitat for wildlife in the Sunshine Arts garden.

Resident artist and filmmaker Kat Lehmer will create a short documentary feature that will later be displayed on the Sunshine Arts website, and recently created a wonderful update on what’s going on at Sunshine Arts through this video. The students themselves will also begin work on a humorous bird-themed video as part of their film class.
