Cazenovia Kids ages 8 through 14 are invited to the Cazenovia Public Library from 1 to 3 p.m. Friday, March 21, to celebrate the half-day of school with “Art For Kids – The Artist Within.” Join Pat Hill and Jenna Wright for the fifth installment of this successful series while enjoying a tour of the art gallery and a close-up look at five pieces selected from the library’s extensive art collection.
With the help of a local artist, participants will focus their attention on the medium and technique used by the artists to convey their particular vision. With their observations in mind, all will be given the opportunity to demonstrate their own artistic style. To inspire and enhance each creation, paper, watercolor pencils, charcoal and a variety of supplies will be provided.
In addition, participants will qualify for a chance to win an art collection, donated to the library by a good friend who wants children to unleash the artist within. This art collection consists of 178 pieces and includes just about everything an artist would need — color markers, crayons, color pencils, watercolor cakes, oil pastels, acrylic paint tubes and much more — all arranged in a wooden case with adjustable trays.
Pre-registration is not required for this program.
