    Children ages 6-11 are welcome to this weekly art program geared to stimulate your child's independent creativity. To achieve this goal, children will pick the medium of their choice (paint, markers, collage, etc.) to create art of their choice. The librarian will provide assistance and instruction as necessary.

Please note that as the children create art parents and guardians are asked to wait in the library.

If your child is under 6 but you believe they can create art independently (without your presence in the art room) please get in touch as it may be possible for them to participate.
