4-H offers more than the traditional ideas of raising animals and growing gardens. Ten 4-H members from East Feliciana experienced the arts side of the 4-H program July 20 at the extension office in Clinton.
These fourth- through sixth-grade members, along with a junior leader helper, completed a variety of activities related to visual arts, sewing, performing arts and food art.
The youth completed a camp-style name banner made from twine and buttons. They sewed their own drink coaster from hand towels and fabric. They ended the day by creating an edible necklace from a variety of cookies, pretzels and gummy snacks.
