Youth Art Month at RPL

It's one of my favorite times of year in the Youth Services Department.  Every March the library becomes an art gallery as we showcase the local talent of budding young artists who inhabit our area schools.  It is so neat to see the different mediums that exhibit problem solving, creativity, observation and communication. 

Did you know that books about art are found in the 700 nonfiction section of the library?  If you are interested in drawing, you have a whole bunch of choices to help you become an expert illustrator.  There are books about drawing automobiles, superheroes, Disney characters, animals, etc.  Some even help you learn how to draw anime or cartoons.  Are you a big fan of the Origami Yoda series by Tom Angleberger?  Then you might like to check out all the different origami books we have and practice your skills.  Perhaps you love to make crafts.  The library owns 216 books on different kinds of crafts you can make.  If you checked out one craft book a week, it would take you over 4 years to go through all of them.  Think of all the amazing projects you could make! 

Become inspired by visiting us.  The artwork from the schools will be up all month for everyone to enjoy.  Please make sure you stop by to appreciate the work of all the creative young artists who live in our area.  You won't be sorry!

I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek but just know that the photographs truly do not do justice to the wonderful quality of work produced by these exceptional artists. They must be enjoyed in person.  We hope to see you soon.
