For over six years our branch has offered successful hand-on arts/crafts/DIY programs for families every Thursday at 4 p.m. After the pandemic, I continued these type of programs in innovative ways online.
Fall for Fine Arts was a weekly library program series offered every Thursday in October 2020 via Zoom to celebrate National Arts and Humanities Month and LAPL Fall Traditions. The program promoted library resources and exposed kids to the Masters and their art techniques. Submitted art works from the Zoom art class also turn this into a mini art exhibit.
This program connected the library to our community, nurtured and explored creative expression, and boosted patron self-esteem. During these challenging times, art inspires, nurtures, brings people together, and art-making puts us in a moment of still peace.
