We were so lucky to have caricaturist Kelly Gannon teach the Jr Artists Workshop at the library this weekend...he was absolutely fantastic with the kids. He usually works on cruises and places like Disneyland so it was a real privilege that he not only gave the kids pointers on drawing caricatures but even drew every one of them and it was a full house.
I always look toward the May workshop with a mixture of joy and sorrow as I enjoy the break I get in the summer but always miss the kids. This weekend I got many hugs, even from the boys, and so many lovely comments about the program from the moms...I am so grateful the library offers this class.
This summer I have a new art project for the teen room and can't wait to share it...at least art programming in the library doesn't end when the Jr Artists program is finished for the season.
