Message from the Director: Creating Cheer

Dear Livingston Library Community,

When you were a child, did you ever make paper chains or string popcorn for a seasonal decoration?  This week at the Library we’re taking it to a whole new level with Gelli printing, an amazing process that combines layers of color, texture, pattern, and found objects, creating one-of-a-kind prints sure to brighten up anyone’s winter.  “We’ll be providing seasonal shapes like snowflakes, snowmen, Christmas trees, and dreidels, but the young artists get to decide which ones to use and how to incorporate them,” explains Anna Coats, supervisor of youth services.  She and teen librarian Karen deWilde are running three seasonal printing workshops this week: on Tuesday, December 5th, at 5 PM, they’ll be welcoming Grades 6 to 8, and the next day, they’ll be working with Grades K to 2 at 4 PM and Grades 3 to 5 at 4:45 PM.  (Each child from K through 5 must be accompanied by an adult.  Registration is required and old clothes are recommended.)

The best part is that the holiday workshops won’t be your family’s only chance to experiment with this novel technique.  The Library will be introducing a new Gelli printing kit to borrow as part of our Ready Set Create series in January.  We can hardly wait to see what you come up with!

Because at Livingston Library, we help you give your children the world.
All the best,

 

Amy
