Frida Kahlo @ Your Library

Kids - come on down to to Central Library and meet your muse! Today, September 13, the dynamic Artworks @ Your Library team will explore the traditions illustrated in Mexican artist Frida Kahlo's works. Then create your own mixed-media masterpiece to take home. And while you're here, take a look at the art works on display in the glass case and on the wall outside the elevators in the Kids' Place.

A previous Artworks @ Your Library program at Central Library featured the art of Eric Carle (of "Very Hungry Caterpillar" fame), and children and parents happily cut and glued for an hour to make collages like the ones he used to illustrate his book.

With the holidays coming up, this could be the beginning of a handmade gift for yourself, your family, or your friends. See you in the Kids' Place at 11:30!
