Oakville Public Library Little Artists Series

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Create, engage and share! In partnership with the Oakville Public Library, join us for an artistic journey through different art movements and styles each week with an art tutorial and added story.

Young artists will stretch their thinking and develop skills while having a blast at home. This is a special opportunity for developing young, creative minds. Make your own art studio at home—a cozy corner, a sunny window seat or a comfortable table and chair. Oakville Galleries' art classes will be paired with a story and literacy connection from the Oakville Public Library.

This program will run virtually and is free of charge; pre-registration required through the Oakville Public Library website.
