Jan 05, 2018

Waldoboro — Registration has begun for a winter children’s program at Waldoboro Public Library, 958 Main St. The Art Club will be held Thursdays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. for five weeks, Jan. 18 through Feb. 15.

Classes will have exciting art projects designed for students in grades 4 through 6. Whether budding artists, or those who just want to have some creative fun with materials, all abilities are welcome.

Each Thursday’s Art Club session will have a different focus of art-making including paper and book arts, collage, printmaking, 3-D art, painting and drawing. Children will gain hands-on experience with the tools, materials and techniques pertaining to the week’s art making. In addition, they will have an opportunity to learn about noted artists and innovators in similar areas of art making.

Joyce Steel, a Waldoboro artist and teacher, will be instructing the Art Club program at the library. Steel is an art educator committed to providing an innovative and nurturing creative learning environment where children may experiment and discover their creative voice.

This program is free of charge and limited to 15 club members.
