Previous March, as the coronavirus pandemic begat remote college and social distancing, the Extensive Seashore Island Foundation of the Arts and Sciences introduced coloring and activity webpages on its site, hoping to give children “a pleasurable each day exercise (to) maintain their creativity likely.” Artist and graphic designer Tracey Cameron made the drawings and puzzles for moms and dads to print out, and is now providing a lot more on the net coloring internet pages that pair with the Foundation’s Science Saturday presentation matters.
For the Jan. 30 Science Saturday virtual lecture, for illustration, John Wnek, now retired from the Marine Academy of Technologies and Environmental Science, spoke about northern diamondback terrapins. Cameron, an LBIF board member, drew a turtle at an airport, with a blurb about a 2011 incident in which 150 diamondback terrapins strolled onto a runway at JFK airport. That page is accessible now to print out and coloration.
The coloring web pages from past spring – featuring birds, maritime daily life, surfboards, bugs, boats, kites, pies and extra – are also nonetheless on the LBIF site, lbifoundation.org/coloring-e book-webpages-for-little ones.
“Check back again for new webpages launching bi-weekly that are themed with 2021 Science Saturdays!” the Foundation encourages. —J.K.-H.
