An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Saturday, repeating until April 24, 2022

The Essex Library is hosting a program for all artists ages 6-12. This exciting two-part series will take place Saturday April 16, from 1:00-2:30 PM, and Saturday April 23 from 1:00-2:00 PM in-person in the Essex Library Program Room. Local author and illustrator Mary Jo Helchowski will help children create their very own children’s books! In Session 1, children will learn about what makes an illustration successful, and use what they learn to create their own illustrations. In Session 2, children will learn the steps in the illustration process, and see their illustrations from Session 1 come together in a book. Every child will leave with a copy of their created book to take home!

This in-person, two-part event is free and open to children ages 6-12. For more information or to register, please call 860-767-1560.
