When you think of alpacas, you normally don't associate them with art. But today kids learned differently.
"I love it! It's just so cute and soft and everything."
"I'm excited to be here because I make new friends in the summer and also get to do stuff with alpaca hair because that's not something you normally do everyday."
"I was really excited because I'm gonna get to learn different things."
"The alpacas have been here and they're so fuzzy, but the bad part about it is washing the alpaca hair because it's all dirty."
"Well, I'm excited about seeing the alpacas because they're just an animal you wouldn't see everyday."
The Cultural Arts Center is actually using alpacas to teach kids in a unique way during it's Textile Art Camp.
"Well we decided it would be fun to do felting. And we knew a lady that had alpacas and we thought it would be wonderful to see the process."
So using real alpaca fibers, kids were able to make different arts and crafts.
"First day was lunch with the alpacas so they could actually see the animals, where the fibers came from. And then they're gonna take the raw fiber and clean it and felt it and make different projects."
Different projects from a different kind of animal.
