Library hosts art workshop

The Gardiner Library will host two Family Art Workshop with Jill Obrig via Zoom on Tuesday August 11 and Thursday August 13 from 3 to 4:30 PM. Open to children of all ages, register by August 3 and receive the Zoom link by emailing Nicole at nlane@rcls.org.

On Tuesday join art teacher Jill Obrig and create a torn tissue landscape inspired by the story The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton and well- known Hudson River artists. On Thursday, engage in a different material and make a bean mosaic after viewing the beautiful works of artist, John J Audubon. Then listen to the funny book “Are You My Mother?” by PD Eastman. The Library will provide a take-home bag of art supplies to pick up at the library on August 8 and 9.

Jill Obrig has been teaching students ages 2-92 for over 30 years at museums, camps, galleries, private and public schools and libraries. For the past three years she has collaborated with the Stone Ridge, Hurley and Rosendale Libraries winning four grants for the project “Exploring Connections between Art, Art History and Literature.”
