August Art Cart: Forest

Color and create in our art space in the storytime room. During August, our art prompt is “I am inspired by the world around me . . . Forest Friends.” There are images and photos of creatures that live in forests to inspire young artists and makers. Materials will vary throughout the month, and children are invited to design and create their own projects using those supplies.


This open-ended, process-based art builds independence, self-regulation, creative thinking, self-discovery, learning, experimentation, confidence, and motor skills. There is no specific project or way something should look; rather, the value is in the experience of creating the artwork and exploring materials and techniques.


No registration is needed. Drop in and create anytime during library hours. Not only are arts and crafts fun, but these activities build essential skills to help your child learn and discover!
Valley Concert Winds is moved inside to St. Croix Prep. Concert will begin around 6:50 PM.
