On July 27th at Montmorency County Public Libraries our county children helped celebrate the end of the summer reading program and proved that “Libraries Rock”. Each family finishing the program and attending the party received a real Ukulele, thanks to a generous donation by Eric Larson connected to the Lewiston Library and a grant from Brush Creek Mill in Hillman. The children and their families where treated to an evening of pizza, treats and many fun activities, including: face painting, making magic sand, playing drums, getting a ukulele lesson, amazing balloon art, puzzle decorating, a rock toss competition, rock - paper - scissor tournament, chalk pastel art, a dress up photo booth and a pet rock adoption center. The evening was perfect. It sprinkled for a little bit but then we were treated to a spectacular rainbow!

   LIBRARY ART OUTREACH PROGRAM
This artwork has been created by the talented students of Montmorency County as part of a program offered by the library. Students receive a brief art lesson about a famous artist and style of art and then create their own masterpiece in that style.

 Keith Allen Haring (May 4, 1958 – February 16, 1990) was an American artist whose pop art and graffiti-like work grew out of the New York City street culture of the 1980s.

Amedeo Clemente Modigliani 
(1
884-1920) was an Italian Jewish painter and sculptor who worked mainly in France. He is known for portraits and nudes in a modern style characterized by elongation of faces and figures, that were not received well during his lifetime, but later found acceptance. Modigliani spent his youth in Italy, where he studied the art of antiquity and the Renaissance until he moved to Paris in 1906. There he came into contact with prominent artists such as Pablo Picasso and Constantin Brâncuși.

Amedeo Modigliani style self portraits by Atlanta 2nd - 5th graders. Modigliani’s style is characterized by extra long necks, blank eyes and dark shadows. I think the students nailed it!
   

  

  

  Wilson A. Bentley (1865-1931).
Wilson Alwyn "Snowflake" Bentley is one of the first known photographers of snowflakes. He perfected a process of catching flakes on black velvet in such a way that their images could be captured before they either melted or sublimated.

  


  Edvard Munch (1863-1944)
Edvard Munch was a Norwegian painter and printmaker whose intensely evocative treatment of psychological themes built upon some of the main tenets of late 19th-century Symbolism and greatly influenced German Expressionism in the early 20th century.
  

  Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986)
Georgia Totto O'Keeffe was an American artist. She was best known for her paintings of enlarged flowers, New York skyscrapers, and New Mexico landscapes. O'Keeffe has been recognized as the "Mother of American modernism". 
    

 

 (1881-1973)
Pablo Picasso was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright who spent most of his adult life in France.

   Mid 1800's
Gyotaku (Japanese 魚拓, from gyo "fish" + taku "rubbing") is the traditional Japanese method of printing fish, a practice which dates back to the mid-1800s. This form of nature printing may have been used by fishermen to record their catches, but has also become an art form of its own.
  

  van Gogh (1853-1890)
Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art.
