ART IN OUR LIBRARY'S AREA SCHOOLS

Atlanta Community Schools 2nd through 5th graders learned how to use watercolor pencils today during Montmorency County Public Libraries Fine Arts Program. They also got to keep the set of supplies they used. We drew and painted perch but they had the option to make their fish any type / colors they wanted. Once again they did an impressive job!

    

    

Atlanta Elementary 2nd through 5th graders got their very own sketch books this week thanks to Montmorency County Public Libraries Fine Arts Program and a HOPE grant from The Michigan Humanities Council. Our first lesson was manga and anime. You can see they are already nailing it.

    

    

Atlanta Community Schools 2nd through 5th graders learned different watercolor techniques in their sketchbooks and then created birch tree paintings using the techniques they learned.
