There are two free workshops at the Menlo Park Library this January that offer kids great learning opportunities.
The first is on Saturday, January 12 at 1:00 pm. Join Betsy Halaby, formerly with Art in Action, in an art project based on Eric Carle’s art and literature. Kids will gain an appreciation for Eric Carle’s literature and illustrations, and they will have the opportunity to create their own artwork in Carle’s style themselves. Advance registration is required. Contact Michele Burnham — firstname.lastname@example.org.
The second — “Writing About the Real World” — is scheduled to start on Tuesday, Jan. 28 from 4:00 to 5:00 pm. Jeanne Du Prau (pictured), award-winning author of The City of Ember as well as several nonfiction books, will lead a three-session writing workshop for 8-to-12 year-olds. Learn about nonfiction writing, write your own, and get feedback from Jeanne. Registration required. Contact Michelle Burnham — email@example.com. This writing workshop will be limited to 15 students.
