Join us as we are inspired by the knitted sculptural forms of Chris Motley’s exhibition Feelings in Fiber. Families will have the opportunity to hear a read aloud of The Mitten by Jan Brett before exploring fiber arts themselves. Then join us in the youth classroom to create your own yarn mandala, lacing cards, and woven paper hearts.

              

                       

 

 

                         

Saturday, February 2nd, 12-2pm

Join us as we explore symbolism and narrative in art. Families will have the opportunity to view 36days, a solo exhibition by artist Paul Flippen, to gain understanding of how one symbol or image can represent or say so many words.

Families can then collaborate on watercolor resist paintings. Learning your alphabet? Draw a symbol or picture for each letter in your name. Be sure to arrive early to hear a read aloud of Sachiko Means Happiness, a narrative of how one family adapts to changes out of love.

 

 

 

 

 

Saturday, March 2nd, 12-2pm

Are you a collector? So is Jerome , the main character of this month’s read aloud, The Word collector by Peter H. Reynolds. Come be inspired by various collections of Humboldt County residents in this year’s Humboldt Collects exhibition. Join us in the Youth Classroom to explore how you can turn a collection into your new favorite piece of art. We will have various bottle lids, egg cartoons, wine corks, buttons, and many more collections to create your own masterpiece. Families will also have the opportunity to create their own collectibles, by designing and creating their own set of artist trading cards.
