On Saturday the kids at the library were privileged to learn the art of glass painting by local artist Anita Singh. Anita moved to Canada a few years ago from India where she was a high school art teacher and she was also an artist whose chair was one of the favorites at the AIRdirondack Gala last year. She is so talented and kind...we're so lucky to have her in our community.
It's nice to see the male contingent of the art classes increase as we offer new and different programs. Even in this weekend's class, the vases could be used for rocks, pinecones, candy or a myriad of collections...one young fellow knew he was going to add his leggo collection to it. The designs were terrific, everything from an octopus and a peacock to zombies and a dragon. This program at the library is one of my favorites because we get to introduce kids to new media and to encourage their experimentation. They have so much fun...and so do I. :)
