Skinker DeBaliviere Community Council (SDCC)’s Arts Committee invites all neighborhood youth to an arts workshop! Kids will work together to create a large-scale “DeBaliviere Skink,” which will be installed at Four Corners. The sculpture will become an informal mascot for the neighborhood. The skink is a kind of lizard that is native to Missouri. Children will also have the chance to make their own animals out of recycled materials that they can take home. This event will be hosted by the Skinker DeBaliviere Arts Council and led by professional artist Jenny Murphy of Perennial STL.
