A great event with a great name. From the Decatur Arts Alliance blog…
On Tuesday, December 17th, Glennwood Elementary 2nd grade students will celebrate their learning with the Stardust Stroll Lantern Parade and book release of SKYLIGHTS II. The students have been participating in lantern building workshops led by Chantell Rytter during art instruction. Ms. Rytter has worked on several Atlanta lantern parades including the Grant Park Conservancy Halloween Lantern Parade, FLUX Lantern Parade and the Atlanta Beltline Lantern Parade. The project is generously funded by the Decatur Education Foundation Teacher Innovation Grant.
Two giant lantern puppets and the BlackSheep Ensemble Band will lead students and their lanterns from Glennwood Elementary through the Decatur Square and end at Little Shop of Stories. Students will then show their collective work SKYLIGHTS II at Little Shop of Stories. You may checkout last years’ book SKYLIGHTS on iTunes.
The parade will leave Glennwood Elementary at 6:30 PM. Please join us for the fun or view the parade traveling through the Decatur Square!
