Art Classes for Kids Starting Friday, July 12

Art Classes For Kids

Make art at the Hudson Area Library this July with artist and teacher Alison Fox! Three free classes for children ages 5 and up will be held during the last three Fridays in July from 3-5pm in the library’s children’s room. Kids are welcome to join us for 1, 2, or 3 classes!

Registration is appreciated but drop-ins are welcome. Call 518-828-1792 for more information or to sign up.

First Class:  Fast Words/Slow Words
Friday July 12, 3-5pm

Kids will make silk-screen prints of words that they would like to slow down and examine. We will explore how poetry creates space to imagine what the poet is communicating and how different a word can be when we make art with it.

Second Class: Library Totem
Friday July 19, 3-5pm

Kids will go through the library and find images that they would like to take out of context and put within their own context. They will start a collection of images that they like, make photocopies of them and then paint them.

Third Class: Beautiful Book
Friday July 26, 3-5pm

Kids will practice making an accordion-fold book with a sewn binding cloth cover and do water colors and water color pencils on the inside.
