Are you ready for our weekly Learning Challenge

These at-home Weekly Learning Challenges are designed by staff to excite and engage kids of all ages this summer.

The Weekly Challenge for the week of Monday 8/10 - Sunday 8/16 is:

Make History - Make Art

Alicia Herman from The Umbrella Arts Center will lead a free drawing workshop on Zoom for kids in 6th - 12th grades. Students will learn about iconic posters involved in political movements including Rosie the Riveter, Uncle Sam's Army Recruitment Poster, and Shepard Fairey’s Make Art Not War. They will learn how to use bold designs to create a poster of their own, documenting their experience in this pivotal time. This class gives kids a creative outlet and place where their ideas and experiences are visible and valued.  Student designed posters will be archived by the Concord Free Public Library and preserved to be shared with generations to come, as part of the Chronicling Concord through Covid-19 initiative. This workshop is offered in partnership with The Umbrella Arts Center.

On Monday Aug 17, you'll have a chance to join us in a Zoom meeting to show off your art work! Register in advance for the Zoom link.

Sponsored by The Friends of the Concord Free Public Library - thank you, Friends!..
