Add to Calendar 13-04-2013 13-04-2013 15 Create Something Great Recycled Sculpture Art Reception Portledge School and the Cradle of Aviation are proud to co-sponsor the third annual Create Something GreatSM Recycled Sculpture Contest. This contest is a hands-on learning experience for budding young artists across Long Island (in pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade) to pique their curiosity about transportation by air, land or sea. Students from across Long Island were encouraged to build sculptures designed around the theme of transportation, such as cars, boats, trains, submarines, space craft, etc., made out of recycled and/or reusable materials. The general public is invited to view all sculptures which will be on display. Award winners will be announced in three assigned age categories based on overall aesthetic value and creative use of recycled materials. All participants in attendance will be recognized and receive a certificate. Instructors from the Cradle of Aviation and Portledge Summer Adventures will host interactive workshops including make your own rockets, how things fly, living in space, eyes on earth, weather to fly by, Legos, and woodworking. The new Portledge Planetarium will also be open for visitors. Afterwards, award winning sculptures will be transported to the Cradle of Aviation for a mini exhibition open to the public from April 15 through April 20. To submit an entry, log onto www.portledge.org/createsomethinggreat. Entries must be delivered April 11-12. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=131473 Portledge School true DD/MM/YYYY
