Junior Artists (ages 5-8) - Online

Does your child learn best with paint, paper, popsicle sticks and glue? Add in a book and some games and you’ve got the perfect program for your little artist.

Get ready to get creative! Junior Artists (ages 5-8) is a live art program on Zoom. Each week we read an exciting book and then create artwork inspired by our theme. Program materials are basic art supplies. Each month we have a new art kit with its own art project available at all open library branches.
