We pondered this, examined this, incubated this, cracked up over this! Does he have depth? Does he have potential? Can he do better? You know him...you do...
Yep! That's him, David.
This summer our library has joined the national project, The Library as Incubator, to support the arts, providing opportunities for creativity for our citizens. And in this case...our young citizens.
The logo for this project has that funky retro look that most of my library kids would not grasp. They have never even seen a card catalog in their public library! This does not in any way diminish their enthusiasm to be a part of something trending across the country. These kids are smart, talented, creative and very funny. Before I say more about them - let's take a look at the project.
I copied the following from The Library as Incubator website to help explain things, but you should go take a look for yourself. Cool stuff. Click here.
We believe the library is a place to connect and create.
Each David was different. Everyone went with a word bubble to explain the new David. Very cool!
These ears are pretty orange...must make for a keen sense of hearing!
We hope to submit our work, if we are lucky we will be featured on the website. We are moving in the right direction. The artwork from this group of elementary students is on display in the Library.
Our Tweens and Teens debuted The Library as Incubator project using Vincent Van Gogh as inspiration yesterday. Can't wait to put their work together for a photo shoot. It's all good! We have some very happy artist in our libraries. As for me...I am the luckiest librarian in town! Yippee!
