We worked with a local youth group---first, we painted the walls and shelves bright colors...
|all the bright colors really enlivend the library!|
Next, I had the youth draw their ideas ---we started with the question: what do you imagine when you read a book?
The young people created some very imaginative designs...then they traced the designs onto the newly painted walls using carbon paper...
and painted, with great precision the designs they created......
|adding a few finishing touches to the pirate ship....|
|this one she called "Romance" .....since she liked to read romance novels...|
|proud artists with their mini mural...|
|an imaginative swan....|
|these two drew and painted a 'Goose Bump" book....|
|the artist with hummingbird and flower...|
|I provided the silhouette outline and the teens painted it with black paint----the space ship and pirate ship the teens designed and painted...|
