Summer campers at City Kids Art Factory in Durkeeville near JAXPORT’s Talleyrand Marine Terminal have turned outdated JAXPORT publications into works of art. The donated publications were used by the children to create various paper crafts including birdhouses, sea creatures, hats and even a replica of the White House.
The information in the surplus publications is outdated, making the books no longer useful in their existing form. Donating the publications provided an ecofriendly way to dispose of them, while providing free art materials for the campers.
City Kids Art Factory is a non-profit organization that works to bring the community together by fostering interest in the visual arts starting from a young age. Camp is provided at no cost and runs throughout the summer.
