What is your favorite kind of tail? The library’s summer reading theme is all about tails, so we are creating tails to bring home! We will have giant pieces of cardboard on hand so that you can make a tail your very own size. Special guest artist Rob Dunlavey will attend to help inspire some tails using his illustrations from In the Woods.
Book: In the Woods by David Elliot, Illustrated by Robert Dunlavey
As part of its Art in the Park program, Waterville Creates is joining forces with the Waterville Public Library and the Colby College Museum of Art to create one-of-a-kind summer art journals in collaboration with a free summer reading series. Program guests will include artists, musicians, live cats, teachers, and scientists.
Every Thursday, we’ll create new pages to add to the summer art journals. Journals can be brought back each week, resulting in a fun and distinctive nature journal that documents your entire summer. Watch a “how to” demonstration of each project, then make your own creation at Head of Falls, a large, open, green space located in downtown Waterville adjacent to the historic Kennebec River.
In addition, each week a pre-selected book will be read aloud to participants as they construct and design their art journals. Bring a blanket or chair to get comfortable while listening and creating content for your journal. This program is free and open to all ages and levels of experience.
In case of rain, we will hold this event at Ticonic Studio (formerly known as Common Street Arts) in the Hathaway Building.
