May the Fourth Be With You - On the First!

We are inviting all aspiring Jedi to join us next week on May 1st from 4 PM - 8 PM for games, crafts, and a movie. Young padawans will have an opportunity to build a miniature sensory lightsaber. We’ll also have Jedi Training Games & Exercises for attendees to test their skills.

Attempt to save Rey from Kylo Ren with a “force field”, build a spacecraft and try to pilot your way into the Death Star or find out just how good your eye sight is with our Blaster Practice.

The games and crafts end at 5:15, when you’ll want to grab a spot on the floor as we watch Rey’s desire to learn the ways of the Jedi force Luke to make a decision that will change their lives forever.

Ebru Art at Kingwood Library

The Kingwood Library held a special SAGE program on Tuesday June 6th featuring a live Ebru demonstration with Artist Nihal Sonmez of the Islamic Arts Society. What is Ebru? Unesco.org describes it as "the traditional Turkish art of creating colourful patterns by sprinkling and brushing colour pigments onto a pan of oily water and then transferring the patterns to paper. Known as marbling, this art is commonly used for decoration in the traditional art of bookbinding."

Event attendees heard a brief history of Islamic arts and then watched as Ms. Sonmez demonstrated how to marble an image of a rose. Later, participants had the opportunity to create and marble images themselves!  It was a fun, enjoyable, and educational morning.
