Film: Great Escape at Dunkirk

As France fell to the German armies in May 1940, 400,000 Allied troops were trapped on the beaches of Dunkirk. Their annihilation seemed certain—a disaster that could have led to Britain’s surrender. But then, in a last-minute rescue, Royal Navy ships and a flotilla of tiny civilian boats evacuated hundreds of thousands of soldiers to safety across the Channel—the legendary “miracle of Dunkirk.”

Join Sue St. Germain for an evening of “expressionistic “ art as you try a variety of  art materials to capture your “spirit animal.”  What animal do you admire and relate to?  Why?  Bring a picture of it or browse through library books Sue will display.  You certainly  don’t need to be an experienced artist.  Experiment with a choice of markers, colored pencils, pastels, water color, or watercolor pencils and appropriate art paper  to capture the spirit of your chosen animal.  Sue’s animal spirit is a hummingbird and she will guide you through the session using this as a model.  Time will be allotted for you to jot down your reflections about the animal and your reason for loving it. This is different and should be fun! Please register.
