The Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) is inviting kids to have their “bowl of inspiration filled to the brim” with a hands-on experience next month.
Michael Albert, master of cereal box art, will teach kids ages 8 to 12 how to create a “cerealism” collage using recycled boxes. According to a release from the library, cereal boxes and printed cardboard consumer brand packages are the medium Albert has used for his nationally renowned Modern Pop Art Experience program, which will be touring over 90 cities in North America.
“We believe in the power of art to ignite young imaginations,” said Brianne Peters, Librarian, Children’s Services. “Michael’s collage art workshop is a wonderful opportunity for kids to explore their creativity, think outside the box (or cereal box!), and create their own masterpieces. Get ready to ‘snap, crackle, and art’ with us!”
KFPL said that all supplies are provided, and noted that because this program uses recycled cereal boxes, they cannot guarantee allergen-free packaging. The hands-on workshop takes place at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Jul. 12, 2023. Registration is available at https://calendar.kfpl.ca/event/8608104.
This workshop is possible thanks to the generous support of the Friends of the Library, the library stated.
