    Art Explorers - Spring Session @ KATE WALLER BARRETT BRANCH LIBRARY

    Explore art history with a story time and a process focused project inspired by a famous artist. Ages 3-6. All supplies provided. Registration required. Contact Vanessa at

    We’re back for a spring session featuring 4 new artists! Art Explorers is a themed story time followed by an art project that allows children to explore the techniques of famous artists. Each session will focus on one artist from history – a story time will introduce children to the artist’s life and works and provide inspiration and context for the project that follows. The art project will be in the style of our weekly artist and will include everything from collage to painting with different mediums to drawing with oil pastels. The focus is early art appreciation and allowing children to explore their creativity. It’s the process, not the product, that matters in Art Explorers!

    In person registration required – space is limited to 15 children per session.

    Registration will begin on Thursday, February 21, 2018 at the Barrett Branch children’s reference desk. You are registering for a package of 4 sessions (March 28, April 4, April 11 and April 25) – single session registration is not an option for this program. If demand exceeds space limitations, names will be drawn and those who are not selected will be added to a waitlist. This waitlist will close when registration for the program closes (Wednesday, March 13, 2019). If there are any no call/no show participants for two sessions, they will forfeit their registration and their slot will be given to another child off the waitlist.

    Art Explorers is an independent experience for ages 3-6. Adults must stay in children’s section. All supplies provided. We will be skipping the week of the 18th in April – have a great spring break!
