Book-It Repertory Theatre is back for a series of live, interactive workshops for kids!

NCW Libraries has enjoyed performances by Book-It Theatre for many years. Their Arts Education program is dedicated to inspiring people of all ages to read. In non-Corona virus times, they bring books to life with live, theatrical performances. This year, they have woven the work of their artists into interactive, virtual workshops. Though these programs are intended for school-age children, anyone who is interested is welcome!

Life Story Collages with Household Items –Tuesday, January 19 4:00PM

This workshop is loosely based on the book Dreamers by Yuyi Morales.

Participants will learn how to create their very own Story Collage based on their lives using anything and everything they might find at home (that an adult says they can use)! Learn to see your life as Art and create something tangible that will allow you to share yourself with your family and friends.
