Welcome to the 2015-2016 Art Lit year!



 Thank you all for volunteering. Without our volunteers there wouldn't be a program for our Children. Looking forward to a great year!!!

We selected 4 artist.  We will begin the year with Emily Carr.  She is a female artist from Canada.  We will also do an African American artist, Jonathan Green and a Surrealist, Joan Miro.   We will finish up with a cultural selection and do Aboriginal art.   Depending on budget, we hope to make Aboriginal Art a bigger project and are thinking of possibly doing boomerangs or didgeridoos.

There will be 4 training sessions.  We will offer a Tuesday evening session and a Wednesday morning session for each artist.   They will be held on the first Tuesday and and first Wednesday of; October, December, February and April.   This will give us approximately 2 months to present each artist.

Tuesday evening training sessions will be from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.   They will be presented by Sherilyn and will be held at the Tigard Foursquare Church.  It is located at 13720 SW Pacific Highway in Tigard.    

Wednesday training sessions will be from 10:00 am to 11:00 am.  They will be presented by Samara.  They will be held at Templeton in the conference room or the library.

1st~   training will be for artist Emily Carr.  It will be offered Tuesday, October 6 and Wednesday, October 7th.   

2nd~ artist training will be on Tuesday, December 1st and Wednesday, December 2nd.

3rd~ artist training will be on Tuesday, February 2nd and Wednesday February 3rd.  

4th~The last training session will be for Aboriginal Art.  It will be held Tuesday, April 5th and Wednesday, April 6th.  

Please mark them on your calendars and plan on attending!  

We still plan to have all of our supplies and the art carts in the Art Literacy area of the library, but we probably will not have as much space as last year.   Due to an additional kindergarten class being added, a lot of technology had to be moved into the Art Lit area.  We should be able to to have access to one of the counters, and some tables.  

Thank you everyone!

Soon to be published...Emily Carr information!!!
