The ArtMobile from the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts at St. Bonaventure University is scheduled to visit libraries throughout Cattaraugus, Allegany and Chautauqua counties, as well as several Pennsylvania sites this summer.
The ArtMobile has been visiting libraries and bringing art to children within the community for six years. Last year, the ArtMobile visited 15 libraries, but this year the Quick Center staff have added five more for their busiest schedule yet.
Anna Hribar and Killeen McGovern, the program coordinators, have planned two days of activities for each library, aligned with the New York Summer Reading theme of “Fizz, Boom, Read.”
“The first session will be centered around projects where children can ‘Explore the Fizz.’ These will be projects that involve chain reactions and fizzy materials that help create some wonderful art,” said Hribar.
The second session will focus on art projects in which children can “Experience the Boom.”
“These projects will get the children moving and shaking as they use unusual materials to help them paint. You’ll need your fly swatter for one of these projects, but you won’t be swatting any flies,” Hribar said.
She and McGovern are excited to visit the libraries and bring art — and a creative outlet — to area children.
“These projects are a fun and exciting way for the kids to get involved and experience something out of the ordinary. We hope to see you out there,” said McGovern.
