New Canaan Library’s Artist in Residence program presents its first workshop led by artist Alissa Siegal on Saturday, April 14 from 12 – 3 p.m. Alissa will lead a group in creating art depicting wildlife in this area that is threatened by extinction, including the Saltmarsh Sparrow, Northern Harrier Owl, and Blue Spotted Salamander. Participants will either decorate pre-cut templates of the animals or create their own drawing from provided images. The completed pieces will be displayed in the Library as a group creating a path across the Library walls. this workshop is appropriate for ages 12 and older. Please register online at newcanaanlibrary.org.
The bi annual Artist in Residence program debuted in May 2016, and is unique in being one of only a few of its kind in the country, aligning the elements of an artist’s residency with the Library’s mission to inspire lifelong learning through innovation and discovery. This spring’s program aims to foster a connection between the community and art; sparking new ways of thinking about and creating art.
