From the San Leandro Library -
An artist from the Museum of Children’s Art (MOCHA) will lead students in kindergarten through fifth grade in a two-part art workshop based on Faith Ringgold’s book Tar Beach at the San Leandro Main Library beginning February 19 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Students will create a story quilt out of paper.
Tar Beach has been described as, "a seamless weaving of fiction, autobiography, and African-American history and literature." It was a Caldecott Honor winner in 1992 and was a New York Times Best Illustrated Book.
You can see a You Tube trailer for the book here.
Space is limited for this free event and registration is required. Registration will open on December 17.
This is a Big Read program, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
The library is located at 300 Estudillo Avenue. For more information or to register after December 17 call 510-577-3960.
