ART IS EDUCATION MONTH! by librarianmama

It’s March and that means it’s officially Art is Education Month presented by the Alliance for Arts Learning Leadership.  The goal of this year’s theme, “Creating a Better Future Together,” is to inspire and share student visions of how we can make positive change for ourselves, our communities and our world through the arts.  You can find out more about Art is Education at their website:  http://www.artiseducation.org/10/

The Castro Valley Library is offering several programs in celebration of Art is Education.  A pre-school quilt, Bollywood Music Concert, Duct Tape wallet program and more!  See all event on our calendar below.

Floating Lanterns
Our friends at the Fremont Taiwan School aim to introduce Taiwanese Culture to the
local community by offering monthly presentations for children 6-12 years old the second Saturday of each month through May 2012. Each session will end with children taking home a hand-crafted treasure as a reminder of the presentation. First program, October 8, will feature Floating Lanterns; followed by November 12, Origins of Paper and Papermaking; December 10, Aboriginal Culture, Janurary 14, 2012 Lunar New Year, February 11, Lantern Festival; March 10, Traditional Foods; April 14, Puppets and Puppetmaking; May 12, Traditional Toys. Programs are in the Learning Center, 2-3:30pm.
Space is limited and sign ups will be taken the month before each program. All supplies are provided. Thanks to our Friends at the Fremont Taiwan School for bringing this rich cultural experience to the Library!
