Humboldt Libraries Offer The ‘Kids Create’ Series of Workshops
This is a press release from the Humboldt County Libraries:
Humboldt County Libraries are offering dozens of free workshops for young children and their families over the next six months.
The Kids Create series of workshops includes music classes with a variety of approaches, including world music exploration and instrument making with Andy Barnett, family singing circles with Jessi Lea Langston, and rhythm, movement, and song celebrations with José Quezada and Heather Shelton of Music Together. Art educators Ella Villamor and Virginia Wood offer a range of drawing and other art experiences that incorporate games, music, and natural history. SCRAP Humboldt introduces creative reuse, and
Tanya Crowley and Yumi Ozaki of Quack & Wabbit Puppet Theatre teach children to make puppets and present a show. Shoshanna inspires with workshops on creative dance, building fairy houses, and designing and testing of mini kinetic sculptures. These local artists and musicians lead participants – both children and their grownups – in joyful explorations of techniques and experiences, fostering creativity and social interaction.
The programs are designed for ages 0-8 and their families; older children are welcome and grownups are encouraged to join in the fun. Quality learning experiences in the arts contribute to social success, support children’s emotional health and academic achievement, and bring families closer together. The Kids Create series provides family arts opportunities in communities throughout Humboldt County. Find a schedule of the workshops at https://humboldtgov.org/2578/
