      The Elko County Library has announced the new fall schedule for After School programs in the Children’s Department.


      The After School Craft program is moving to 3:30pm Tuesday afternoons starting Tuesday, September 15th.  This new fall session is for children ages 5 and older.

      Art Club is a new addition to the library’s weekly After School programs starting 3:30pm Wednesday, September 16th.  Art Club is for children 8 to 14.  Each week a different artist will be featured with an art project copying his/her style.

      9/16     Magical Creatures - Paul Klee created magical fish pictures using watercolor and oil paints.  Children will create a similar effect with watercolor paints and wax crayons.

      9/23     Jungle Scene - Henri Rousseau used glowing colors and strong shadows to bring his jungle painting to life.  Now you can create your own jungle with dramatic shading and bright colors.

      9/30     Hanging Mobile – Alexander Calder created huge mobiles out of painted steel & wire.  You will make a miniature version using cardboard and pipe cleaners.

      10/07   Pastel Dancers – Edgar Degas used soft pastels to capture the delicate fabric of his dancer’s costumes.  You will use chalks to create a similar effect.

      10/14   Foil Figures – Alberto Giacometti sculpted hundreds of stick people in different poses.  You will sculpt your own stick people using pipe cleaners and foil.

      10/21   Spin Painted Plate – Damien Hirst creates his spin pictures on a huge wheel.  You will try a similar technique by spinning a paper plate.  It is very messy – watch for flying paint and dress accordingly.


      The cost for After School Crafts and Art Club is $1.00 per week.  Because of limited space, each weekly program will be limited to 15 participants.  The fall sessions will continue for 6 weeks and participants are welcome to participate 1, 2, or even all 6 weeks.  Samples of the crafts and art projects will be on display at the library beginning September 1st


      Beginning 4:00pm, Thursday, September 17th, is Sign Language Class.  The class is for children 7 years of age and older This is a free program, but pre-registration is requested because of limited space.  The class is 1 hour long.
