The Lewiston Public Library, in partnership with ArtVan, plans to offer an in-person art program for youth ages 5-14 at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, March 9, April 6, and April 13.
The program will take place in the children’s department of the library at 200 Lisbon Street. Children from 5 to 8 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
ArtVan is a mobile art program that provides hands-on creative art opportunities for self-expression, personal growth and enjoyment, according to a press release from the library. All of her projects aim to inspire artistic creation with a variety of materials to explore.
ArtVan programs engage all age groups, encourage time spent outdoors and reduce screen time, help young people stay connected, decrease stress and release expressions of unspoken emotions, such as loss and confusion.
ArtVan began in 2004 and has provided strengths-based and therapeutic art programs to inner city neighborhoods.
The event is free and open to the public, and no registration is required. All art supplies will be provided.
