experiment with papercuts of dog teams. St. Patrick's Day has it's
shamrocks, St. Patrick, leprechauns, pots of gold, rainbows, and Celtic
designs. The first day of Spring in 2016 is March 20th. The class will also explore decorative egg designs, cards, and motifs in preparation for Easter Traditionally March was when 'the circus comes to town', bringing acrobats, animals, clowns, and tents.
