Montmorency Co Pub Libraries have been teaching fine arts to Hillman 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. The students all received a sketchbook of their very own to keep, made possible by a generous grant from the Hillman Grist Mill. Students learn about a famous artist and style of art. They get to keep a set of the art supplies that they use. This allows them to continue practicing art at home. Students have learned about George Rodrigue and his Blue Dog. They got a set of crayons to take home. They also learned about Picasso, made Picasso style snowmen collages and got to take home scissors, paper scraps and glue sticks. Their artwork is absolutely amazing.



The Lewiston Branch will be starting up Card Classes again on Thursday, February 16th 1-3pm. Space is limited please call (989) 786-2985 or stop in to ask for details.

LEWISTON - February, 2023

At Lewiston Elementary school with 2nd through 5th graders. Students learned about Roy Lichtenstein’s style of pop art. They were challenged to create a pop art drawing using stencils, dots, repeating patterns, a limited amount of colors and appropriate onomatopoeia sound words. Students got to keep a set of markers and a small stencil ruler. Many of the students were so patient and created such detailed compositions that they didn’t finish. Luckily their teachers allow them to continue working n their masterpieces in their free time at school. Once again our young artists amaze me with their creativity.




LEWISTON - December 2022
Lewiston 2nd through 5th grade students completed another fine arts lesson presented by Montmorency County Public Libraries. First we read Dot by Peter H. Reynolds and looked at some famous artists who painted dots and circles (Joan Miro and Wassily Kandinsky). We then painted an abstract dot inspired acrylic on canvas painting. The students created some impressive masterpieces.

ATLANTA - December 2022
The Atlanta second through fifth grade students have been busy with fine arts lessons offered by Montmorency County Public libraries. They learned about pop art, Roy Lichtenstein, his use of limited colors, lines, dots, onomatopoeias (sound words) and word bubbles. They used stencils and permanent markers to create drawings in Lichtenstein’s pop art style. Many of the students did not finish their project because of all the details they were including. They will continue to work on them in their sketch books.
Then we read The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds and looked at some famous artists who painted dots and circles (Joan Miro and Wassily Kandinsky). We then painted an abstract dot inspired acrylic on canvas painting.
The students were very creative and once again their artwork became masterpieces.
