Homeschool Art Lab

10:30am - 11:30am

Hands-on art and art history for homeschoolers!

This program for 8-11 year olds will meet outdoors on the library lawn (the library has folding tables, outdoor chairs, and 2 canopy tents). Youth Services Librarian July will read a short biography or other related book about the artist or style we'll be learning about, show a brief video, or share books or prints of the artist's work. Kids will then have a chance to make art in that style.

Georges Seurat/Pointillism, Q-tip pointillist pictures
Nature artist Andy Goldsworthy, outdoor pieces with objects found in nature
