Art Start 2016

ART START: July 11 – 28, Monday – Thursday, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
ART ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES.
No registration required; just walk-in.


Children and their families are invited to exercise their creativity this summer at Art Start, a three-week series of free art activities taking place at the Newburgh Free Library. “Exercise” is the library’s buzz word this summer as Art Smart is offered in conjunction with the summer reading programs including “On Your Mark, Get Set . . .READ!” (kids), “Get in the Game” (teens) and “Exercise Your Mind” (adults) that promote fitness and learning for all ages.

The art activities will be held Monday – Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in front of the library, inside in the event of bad weather.
