Every Child is an Artist Sign. Kids Artwork Display. Art Gallery Wall.  Playroom Wall Decor. Kids Decor. Playroom Wall Art. Playroom Sign. - Etsy This three part art series for preschool age children is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

3-5 year old children and their caregivers will have fun exploring famous artworks and making their own art in these three programs designed especially to support early childhood learning.  Each 45-minute class begins with circle time, where children explore famous artworks through observations and multimodal group activities including stories, songs, and movement aimed at developing visual literacy and communication skills. Next, participants transition to the table for individual hands-on art projects that provide problem-solving and decision-making opportunities as well as fine motor practice. Finally, classes will conclude with literacy and sensory free play time with books and materials that reinforce the theme of the day.

*March 7 class: All About Lines with Jackson Pollock
April 4 class: Lines to Shapes with Piet Mondrian,
