An art lesson "Sakura Branch" was held in the Children’s room on April 10. The participants learned how to make a dimensional applique out of coloured paper.

To create a blooming sakura twig, one needed cardboard, corrugated and coloured paper, glue, scissors and a hole punch. Having prepared the base and made the blanks of twigs and flowers, the kids carefully assembled all the details into a single composition. They slightly spread the paper petals with their fingers, and lush pink sakura buds bloomed on the branches.

Everyone was able to admire the beautiful spring compositions.

Today we take a look at the history of the beat generation – in dates, numbers, faces and the most important aspects. Briefly and to the point.
