Studious scrapbooking: Elementary students contribute to bicentennial project



She said the images should provide a record of some of the places families visit today, even if they disappear over the years or change. 

“I think that people enjoy seeing the innocence of kids’ drawing when they’re uninhibited,” Arnold said. “They don’t always look perfect, but the kids can tell you everything that’s going on in the picture. It’s a great way for them to communicate.”

But Harrison said she wants the rest of the community to get involved in the project, too. She said parents or anyone else can pick up materials and information, as well as drop off finished products at Riverview Towers, the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library, the Carnegie Center for Art and History or at the Arts Council of Southern Indiana along Market Street.

“It’s something that’s exciting to do and look through one day to see what all we have in there,” Harrison said. “There’s all kinds of ways to do these scrapbooks. Ours may not be as fancy as some, but it’s still going to be a lot fun.”
