A.W.E. Art Workshops

5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Tippecanoe
Tippecanoe Library Community Room
A drop-in program designed for children in Grades K5-5, although older siblings are welcome.  Each visit begins with an A.W.E. artist reading aloud a story or two and then discussing the book or illustrator.  Participants will then work on imaginative art activities relevant to the book or artistic theme for the day.  This is a great opportunity to be creative, try new techniques and have fun expressing your artistic point of view.  Everyone gets to take home their creations.  Families are encouraged to attend and make art together!  This program is a collaboration between the Milwaukee Public Library and Artists Working in Education, Inc.
