Paper Mache Vegetable Workshop for Kids

The Concord Free Public Library is partnering with The Umbrella Arts Center to offer a free paper mache workshop geared towards children in grades K – 5 and their families. We’ll make giant paper mache vegetables which we’ll hang from the Children’s Library ceiling to celebrate the fall harvest!

Come to one or both of our two workshops in the Children’s Library at the Main Library (129 Main Street Concord, MA):
Wednesday, Sept 28 at 3 pm
Wednesday, Oct 5 at 3 pm

No registration is required.

Kathryn Bartholomew will lead the workshop. She is a visual artist and arts educator and teaches nature-focused painting classes at the Umbrella Arts Center.

Thanks to the Friends of the Concord Free Public Library for making this program possible!
