September 16: Unfortunately, we have had another person test positive for COVID after spending an extended time inside the library yesterday. We will not be providing any activities in house today and until further notice. I am so sorry we can't meet. I will continue the Facebook Live videos. 

We will be working on the garden plot outside on Saturday September 18 from 12-1. If any of you would like to help lay out the cardboard layer for our lasagna garden and help break twigs for the 2nd layer, you are welcome to join us out back at the plot. Please use good judgement and social distancing, if you decide to be here.

Art lesson 1 Grades 1-5:

Read the lesson on the elements of art. Print out the image and use markers, crayons, pencils, paints or oil pastels to complete the assignment. Use your 6"x9" drawing paper so that it will fit in your art notebook. You may pick up your notebook, drawing paper and any printouts that you need during the library open hours. Bring the notebook with you to group meetings.

Op Art-color and value, lesson 2:

Print out the image below. If you are unable to print the image, come in to the library and I will print it for you. You will need crayons (no markers or pencils) to complete this task. If you have your 6"x9" drawing paper, use it to complete the drawing. You may pick up drawing paper at the library at any time during our open hours. Make sure to pick up your art notebooks, so you can save your lessons all together. 

Cube--form and value, lesson 3a:

Now that you know how to follow the drawing diagrams, draw this cube to learn more about form. The bow also illustrates form.
