Benefits of Crafts in Story Times

 


Developmental Benefits of Art

In our Story Times, we often incorporate creative activities.  We practice this approach in order to provide building blocks of child development.  The arts promote skills that are important in academic, career and life success.  Arts and crafts also open a child’s eyes to a new world of possibilities and independent thinking.
Here are just a few reasons why we use crafts and arts as part of our regular programming


Motor Skills: Scribbling with a crayon, learning to hold scissors, manipulating paintbrushes are all helpful dexterity skills that later translate into learning to write.

Lone Star Art Guild Convention and Show: A regional Art Show and Sale in your back yard!

Please consider adding to your Saturday plans a visit to the Lone Star Art Guild’s 53rd Annual Convention and Art Exhibition at the new Klein Multipurpose Center on FM 2920. The Lone Star Art Guild is the umbrella group for 17 independent art leagues within a 200-mile radius of Houston, including the Tomball Art League. At this convention the winning works from the member art leagues’ art shows are judged against each other. So all the work you will see will be the best of each club. You’ll see paintings, drawings, mixed media pieces, photographs, and digital art; sculpture and studio fine crafts.
The convention itself is happening Friday and Saturday; the Pubic Art Exhibition and Sale is from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday. For further information visit their website.

Northwest Art League group exhibiting in Room L-129

Within a 200-mile radius of Houston there are 18 independent art leagues under an umbrella fine arts organization called the Lone Star Art Guild. The Tomball Art League serves our immediate area and its next-door neighbor to the south is the Northwest Art League. This month we are delighted to host the artworks of a group of Northwest Art League members in our meeting room. Carmen Zorba, Claire Payne, Jerry Sue Greenhill, and Anh Lam have braved the traffic along Highway 249 to come north and hang a variety of acrylic and watercolor pieces. Do come by and enjoy their work.
