Join us for our first ever Books as Art Exhibit at the library and expand the idea of what a book can be! In this exhibit, Milton kids will learn that books are more than just words on a page: they can be sculptural as well as playful. A month-long exhibit will be accompanied by two workshops to allow children of various ages to interact with the spider books and become part of the exhibit.
Workshop 1: Children ages 3-7 ( Oct 19th 2:30 PM ) can adopt a spider and make it their own. Participants will decorate a spider book from the exhibit with silly eyes, yarn hair, glitter glue, metallic pens, pipe cleaners etc. Participants will name each spider and fill out an info sheet about their spider ( name, age, favorite food, favorite book, etc.). Decorated books will be hung up in the Children's Room for the remainder of the exhibit.
Workshop 2 ( Oct. 26th 2:30 PM ) will feature spider stories. Older children, ages 6-12 can adopt a spider book from the exhibit in which to write a story. Participants will fill out an info sheet about their spider and their story. Decorated books will be hung up in the Children's Room for the remainder of the exhibit.
