Killeen McGovern, left, and Anna Hribar get the ArtMobile from St. Bonaventure University ready to visit Prendergast Library on July 22 and July 29. They will offer free art activities related to the Summer Reading theme for children 5-12. Signups are required. Register at 484-7135 or 509 Cherry St., Jamestown.
Session 1 on Tuesday is titled "Explore the Fizz."
According to Anna Hribar, one of the program coordinators for the Summer ArtMobile program, "These will be projects that involve chain reactions and fizzy materials that help create some wonderful art. Spoiler alert: one of the projects requires you to blow bubbles!"
Session 2 on July 29 is called "Experience the Boom."
"These projects will get children moving and shaking as they use unusual materials to help them paint," Hribar said. "They'll need their fly swatter for one of the projects, but they won't be swatting any flies."
This is the ArtMobile's sixth year of traveling to libraries to offer art projects for area children.
"Last year we visited 15 libraries, and this year we have added five more for our busiest schedule yet," Hribar said.
Prendergast Library is located at 509 Cherry St., Jamestown. For information, call 484-7135.
