Last weekend a full house of young students were excited to learn abstract painting from local artist Anita Singh at the Airdrie Public Library. Not only did they have the opportunity to be taught by an art teacher all the way from India, but also to work on canvas.
I often think how fortunate we are in my community to have access to the wonderfully talented people who are excited to share their knowledge with this younger generation. I have been working as the Art Program Co-ordinator at the library for almost five years and so often I am amazed that I have had the opportunity to connect these generous and skilled artists with local kids. And I love the fact that these kids get so excited every time.
Next month we are looking forward to a screen printing class with local graffiti artist Zac Abbott. I just know they're going to have a ton of fun as Zac is not only talented but the kids love him.
