The third year of Art @ Your Library will bring an array of opportunities for kids and teens to learn more about the arts at St. Louis County Library. All 20 SLCL branches will feature interactive programming around a different creative topic every other month. Beginning in January, singers, dancers, storytellers and instrumentalists will perform, giving participants a chance to learn from some of the best new talent in the area.
Among the presenters will be the Paul Mesner Puppets, Monkey Tales Theatre, Metro Theater Company, Stages St. Louis, COCA, songwriter Dino O'Dell, DaySpring School of the Arts, authors Serena McCarthy and Angela Sage Larsen, and the Hui Hula 'O Punahele Hula Halau & Polynesian Dance Company.
Of special note is a workshop by the Metro Theater Company to introduce storytelling techniques to teachers and caregivers. This 45-minute program will help adults learn simple, expressive techniques to engage children and capture their attention and imagination. The workshop will be presented on the following dates at the following branches:
