Panel Art with Lyndy Bazile

Photograph of participants and artists gathered around a piece of panel art.

The main goal of this program was to give middle school-aged kids a sense of ownership of the library's Teen Room. We invited a local artist to work with the kids on creating colorful panels to decorate the room. The participants visited and worked within the artists' studio space and got to see their final pieces installed.

Abayomi Doll Making Workshop

Photograph of materials in the doll-making kit.

This program was hosted in honor of Black History Month. I am of Gullah-Geechee descent and wanted to share and preserve my culture by teaching others.

The kit includes brown felts for making the dolls and West African textiles for dressing them. The kit also includes 'found objects' like sea shells, feathers, buttons and beads to adorn the dolls, an infographic about the Gullah-Geechee heritage and a free virtual tour of the 'Cum Yah Gullah' Exhibit at the Fort Bend Children's Discovery Center.
