“A is for Artist” Summertime Kids Grant
The Monroe Lending Library is the recipient of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation “Summertime Kids” Grant.
“A is for Artist” will be our summer reading/craft program introducing children to the art of four main artists:
Dale Chihuly, Jackson Pollard, Louise Nevelson and Charley Harper
This four-week program will be open to the children of the Monroe Community, either as visitors from a local summer care group or on Saturday mornings during our normal library hours.
Our goals for this program are to share literature about and some of the more famous art of these artists; show the differences and relationships between artist; and allow the children to create their own art, similar to that of the artist whom we are studying each week.
The “A is fir Artist” program is July 11, 18, 25 and August 1st. To register your child, stop by the Monroe Lending Library behind the Monroe Primary School during our open hours or call the Library at 360-0714. You may leave a message during our non-library hours.
The four-week project will culminate in an art show, displaying all the children’s art projects. We are planning a picnic party in conjunction with our art show handing our prizes to the children for their art. pieces.
